Forcing Manual Calculation For a Workbook in Excel

When you open an Excel workbook, the program automatically calculates any formulas that are in the worksheet. This is called automatic calculation, and it happens every time you make a change to the worksheet. If your workbook contains a lot of formulas, this can slow down your computer.

You can force Excel to calculate the formulas manually by doing the following:

  1. Open the workbook that you want to calculate manually.
  2. On the Formulas tab, in the Calculation group, click Calculate Now.
  3. Excel recalculates all formulas in all open workbooks, from left to right and top to bottom.

Note: If your workbook contains links to other workbooks, those workbooks must be open for Excel to update them. Otherwise, Excel displays a message that it can't update some of the links.

To calculate all formulas in a worksheet:

  1. Open the worksheet that you want to calculate.
  2. On the Formulas tab, in the Calculation group, click Calculate Sheet.

Note:
If your worksheet contains links to other workbooks, those workbooks must be open for Excel to update them. Otherwise, Excel displays a message that it can't update some of the links.
To calculate all formulas in all open workbooks:
On the Formulas (or Home )tab, in the Calculation group, click Calculate Now (or press F9). Excel recalculates all formulas in all open workbooks.
