Pretty sure that Excel 2010 will have the same number of rows as Excel 2007. 1,048,576.

I think the confusion arises around whether you're talking about rows in some external database or the number of rows on an Excel sheet. You can, for example, run a pivot table over an Access table, which can have more than Excel's row limit.

Well the Beta is, I guess they could still change stuff but I would think number of rows is fundamental and won't be changed.

so my computer has been sucking big time lately. my lease isnt' up yet but i will by asking IT for a new one anyway. along with many other issues, here's some of the latest:

we have a MANDATORY screensaver. when i logback on, sometimes Excel has decided to shut itself down. When I reopen Excel, none of the files that were opened before were autosaved. BUT, when i close it manually, then reopen again, the files show up as autosaved.

on my latop, i have the touchpad mouse thing as well as the eraser tip mouse thing, both with their own set of click buttons. the other night, the touchpad mouse buttons decided not to work anymore. and of course, that's the mouse that i likeD to use when i'm at home not on a docking station. grrrrr

The only way that Word will shutdown properly without the "not responding" popup message is if i go to file/exit.

i could go on and on, but this isn't the venue for it.

That takes some doing.

I ran Excel out of memory while moving a pivot table into another workbook.
