Not WEnough Memory Error When Opening A Large Excel file

    I have a large Excel file I was working on and saved prior to Excel
    crashing & closing on me running Windows 2000. The file is 52 Megs
    large and I saved it prior to moving some records. Now it refuses to
    open, giving an error of "Not enough memory".
    Is there any way around this? even opening the file without the
    calculation fields in it would be fine or at worst, truncating the end
    of it just enough so that I can open it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your advise. I do have 512 Megs of RAM. I was able to
    recover the data using Office Recovery Pro version 3 - it stripped the
    calculation fields into their text equivalencies but that was better
    than nothing.
    I have now revamped the database.
