I have an excel worksheet with a lot of information in it.  I have had
no problems opening or saving the file in the past.  But recently, I
tried to make it presentable by formatting it.  I might have gone a
little overboard on formatting but now the file takes for ever to open
and save.  Is this normal?  What slows down excel more: equations,
formatting, cell contents, size, ...?

Please help.
