OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Large Excel File Not Saved Neither Recoverable On IMac
Jun 5, 2012
I work on Excel files through my Office Mac program. On two occasions, a large Excel file, (about 1.5 MB) will not save and is not recoverable. It gives me an error code -43. I work on many such files without problem, but this has now happened on two occasions with important files.
Is there a size limit for importing an Excel File into Numbers? The error message says the file is too large. Has this been changed in i-work 09? The file has multiple sheets that refer to each other, but i can't even open at this point. It is 3.1 MB.
Out of the blue my Mac suddenly is devoting a huge amount of ram to file cache.Â I have 32 Gigs of Ram and curretly 27 gigs of that is devoted to file cache.Â I am only running mail, iTunes and Chrome and I have 7 mg of ram left.Â What could be causing this and is there a fix?
Info: iMac (27-inch Mid 2010), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4), 32 GB RAM
I just migrated from Lion on an old MacBook series 2007 to a MacBook Air. Yesterday, I opened up a grading file in Excel 2011, entered grades, saved the file (NOT Save As - just Save) handed back the assignments to my students - and then went to reopen the file later, and all of my changes were gone. I made more changes, Saved, just opened the file again, and they aren't there. To experiment, I opened the file just now, wrote in a silly comment on the top line, saved, reopened without quitting excel - and the changes aren't there.
A temporary work-around is that I can do a Save As every time I make changes, but that's ridiculous - I'm often updating a file and need the changes to be there. I just tried this with Word as well and I'm having the same problem - some Saved changes are there, some are not.
Does anyone know how to set the Excel (2008 version) toolbars at top of app to remain as a saved preference? I've tried everything and when I quit Excel and re-open, everything I've changed about the toolbar view is gone and I'm left with nothing. It wasn't like this all along, and somehow I ended up this way.
I am searching for a plugin, software or a solution for a situation I have with an Excel/Word Mail Merge.
It's a law firm we specialize in DUI/DWI and Reckless Driving defense. We subscribe to a data collection service that pulls data from various court systems around the state. We are then given this data by jurisdiction. The Excel files we receive come with 2 workbooks in one file for Traffic and Criminal arrests data with name, address, reason for arrest, etc, etc.
What I have been doing is opening each Excel file and copying and pasting into a new worksheet only grabbing the DUI and Reckless driving arrests because tis is all I am needing from the various files. I then save the new workbook and do a mail merge with Word from this newly created workbook.
Now my question is there such a plugin or software that will combine all the Excel files I receive from the Data collection house and then be able to filter out only the DUI and Reckless Driving arrests to a single Excel Workbook?
Is there any Recoverable CDs or Thumbdrive for MacBook Air? Recently, I have obtained a MacBook Air from Apple Store, but there is no CD or Thumbdrive. I remember Apple use to give a recover Thumbdrive for Mac. If there isn't, where can I download one ?
iJust deleted a couple object in IDCS2 and hit command-S instead of command-Z. These objects had lots of attributes applied to them and this will take me forever to get this thing back to the way it originally was. Is this possible to recover?
setting to be able to open a file before it is saved. for example clicking on a torrent link file only gives you the option to save it. how to bypass the save and let it open straight to the default torrent program or whatever you got set up as the default program.
For some reason when I save a Microsoft 2008 Word file to my desktop, as soon as I am done saving it, stuffit opens and a folder with the same name as the .docx file is created that contains the .docx info. So everytime I save one file I end up with 1 word doc and one corresponding folder. Any feedback on how to stop this or hide the folders or put the folders in their default directory?
It will not save it saying.Â This file can not be saved it is an unrecognizable format.Â /Users/diane/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Mail Downloads/A02307BB-F55C-48D4-B9BA-9E979E4201C2/sm06440.jpg....I have done nothing new to the Imac, and cant understand why this has changed.
Here is my situation... I have a file on my macbook pro that is an .iso file that is 5.5 GB big... I want to move it to my desktop PC so I can use the file.. I have a external hard drive, but i get the "error code 0" thing when I try and move it over, which now i know is because its in a FAT32 format....
Are there any solutions, or any other ways that I can transfer this file to my desktop PC?
I'm trying to secure-empty-trash a large backup disk image, about 275 gigs. During the process I had put the computer to sleep a couple times. After that, it seemed to be making no progress. I tried to stop the process so I could try again, and now it says
"Emptying the Trash... Stopping..."
and has said that for hours with no apparent progress on the status bar. Is there anything I can do get it to finish the process, or to actually stop so I can try again?
I have a 3 gig file that I want to send to someone by burning it on a few cds (no dvd burner T.T). What is the best way to compress the 3 gig file and burn it over a few cds so my recipient can take the files off the cd's and recombine them? I've seen rar files like this, and I guess that would be good but I don't know how I would do it.
