I have a massive calculations page and have this error message. Is there an easy fix to this?

    Hi @BFuller

    Are you able to post what formulas you're using in this sheet? There may be ways we can reduce your ranges or the cells that are being referenced.

    For example, if you're using a VLOOKUP formula that has a range looking across 10 columns, but you're only using 2 columns (one to find the matching row and one to pull data back from), you can change this to be an INDEX(MATCH formula looking only at the 2 columns. This would eliminate 8 columns from your formula references!

    Here's more information on INDEX(MATCH: Formula combinations for cross sheet references

    Here's an article that goes through reference limits: Formulas: Reference data from other sheets
