    Arrey formula taking long time to calculate - any other way or MACRO can be built ??

    Hello Everyone,
    i have excel file where i have raw data in "Current" tab and "Previous" Tab copy pasetd from respective original files.
    in Current work tab, i pulled 5 perticulat columns from Current tab in column B-F and same is done in Previous Work tab.
    in column I-L i have some Arrey formula in place which search for the Match condition formula.
    On basis of results in those column i pull the data using Index formula from Previous Work file matching to current work file column B-F.

    Using this arrey formula it is taking too much of time to calculate my excel file (around 3-5 mins) as i have kept the calculation mode as Manuall.

    can anyone help me in reducing this time or providing me simple MACRO which can be RUN once i Copy the data in Current and Previous Tab.

    any help is really appriciated.

    Hi,

    Referencing entire columns in array formulas is not advisable, and more than likely is the main contributing factor to your poor spreadsheet performance.

    Amend 'Previous Work'!$B:$B in your formulas, either with dynamic offsetting or by choosing a sufficiently (though not overly) large upper limit to the range reference.
