    Right i have 3 spreadsheets at work, they are all pretty much the same, just containing different figures, a few macros etc.

    however, 2 are around 700kb but the third is 12mb.... why could this be?

    thanks

    Does the third have conditional formatting on?

    They all have conditional formatting, there must have been somthing hidden in the sheet, as i selected all the cells that didn't contain something useful and cleared the data and formatting, and the file went from 12mb to 400kb....
