I need assistance in reducing a file size as it is now
about 10MB and it is difficult to work with as opening,
working with and save time are very, very slow.

There are arrays, macros, links, you name it to get this
file to work properly.  I have tried to reduce the size
by breaking the links and deleting the macros before
distribution to help but somehow it is not making a
difference.

Can someone help provide some insight with what are the
size hogs in Excel?  Also, if anyone knows why there is
limited change in size even when remove links and macros?

It is a really helpful spreadsheet but it's usefulness is
diminishing as it grows.

Thanks.
