I think I made Excel do a little to much work today.

    @ramen trying to run a vlookup over 40k records over 2 workbooks (second workbook had the lookup value sorted)

    It didn’t seem to like that 🤷‍♂️

    @ramen because I have several csv’s to match data across and find inconsistencies.

    Excel other then that vlookup is pretty easy to work with otherwise.

    Impressive, uses all cores to a 100%.

    @marcdecline I can’t say I’ve seen excel behave any other way, and I have to use it regularly, large (20k+) record lookups over multi workbooks get complete cpu utilisation every time (4 cores / 8 threads)

    no no, it was Excel who made the CPU do a little too much work

    Why on earth do you need 32GB of memory?

    @EmptyStack usually for multiple VM's constantly running, but it comes in handy when pushing excel hard to crunch large spreadsheets.

    I work with Excel, too, usually ~5k records across multiple workbooks. I still think Excel is only hogging the CPU just because it can and it doesn't actually use it.

    What laptop are you using with 32GB of Ram? ... Asking because I'm looking to change mine in the near future.

    @lunorian So you think your browser would be able to handle it?

    @C0D4 I tried importing a CSV with 1.6 million records the other day. Let me say that didn't go well. Ended up importing it to MongoDB and making a Python script instead

    @aaxa I find if I’m headed over the 500k line, excel is not the place you want to be working with that spreadsheet no matter the computer.

    I get this every Monday also due to vlookup. Pain in the ass. Especially as my rig don’t have those resources.
