Large multi line documents

Before I go delving in and creating a large sheet I need to ask how does Smart Sheet function with sheets containing 20ish columns and 1000's of rows?

This is in relation to the way Excel would struggle to handle particularly large files.

Also what are the recommendations on backing up Smart Sheet docs?

    Hi @surveys

    I hope you're well and safe!

    There are some limits to be aware of, but you're not close to the limits with 20 columns and 1000 + rows.

    Sheet and Imported File Size Maximums

    A sheet cannot exceed a total of 500,000 cells—that is, when multiplied together, the number of rows and columns in your sheet cannot exceed this number.

    NOTE: Imported files have the same restrictions and cannot exceed 50 MB.

    Sheet Component( Maximum)

    Rows 20,000

    Columns 400

    Cells 500,000

    Inbound Cell Links 20,000

    Unique cells referenced in cross-sheet formulas 100,000

    Sheet maximums:

    Rows: 20,000

    Columns: 400

    Cells: 500,000

    Characters in a cell: 4,000

    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
