Excel cannot complete this task with avaliable resources.

 
 
If You've ever come across the above error when trying to open an Excel workbook ("Excel cannot complete this task with available resources. Choose less data or close other applications") then you can resolve it by increasing its priority in Windows.
 
 
With Excel still running, open task manager and locate the Excel.exe process, right click on it and navigate to priority, normally it should be set to normal, if you increase this to "Above Normal" you should be able to open your problematic workbook. I am not sure of the underlying cause of this and I've only seen this problem when running Excel 2010, it is defiantly not a hardware/resource issue.
