As the title states. This is what comes up when I try to edit the design table. Any suggestions? File is native to SW2011 and Excel 2010(created last friday).
SW2011 SP2, WIN 7, Office 2010
Welcome to the forum. I encountered this a lot in 2010.
Couple things to do is close out of your SW session and that will allow it
you to open the design table and sometimes doing this will allow it to be opened
back up an infinite amount of times. Wierd I know.
Also if you go to where your office programs under all programs there is a
diagnostic tool that has worked for me as well.

Scott, please re-write those instructions above. I do not understand. You must have left out a word or two.
I took this to mean closing and restarting Solidworks, and found that it was successful.
I am having this same problem in 2011 x64 & Excel 2007. It was not happening until I got 2011 x64 sp.3.0.
Any one have an answer to this problem yet?
I used to have this problem all the time with an older SolidWorks and excel 2003, but it just started happening again today with SW 2011x64sp4.0 and excel 2010. No recent updates either.
Previously the only solution was to restore an older backup version of the file in question(or close without saving), but they all had internal design tables. I never had this problem with external design tables.
You can always just delete the design table and make a new one, I have no better solution.
Mark / Chris,
When I was experiencing this I was using a 64 bit machine. Haven't seen it
since working back on a 32 bit. Now, I have heard some say that the 32 vs 64
doesn't make a difference, but this has been my experience for what it is worth.
I had this same problem, what I did was actually copy everthing to a new spreadsheet and instead of automatically creating select create from file and use the newly pasted data. It seemed to work great for me. If you have any other questions regarding it feel free to shoot me a message.
Yes I've had the same thing with SW2011 & SW2015 - "Insufficient memory to perform operation" then excel error you mentioned, for me it was in an Assembly but tables in parts worked fine.
Also when trying to save Table nothing happens.
Seems this Excel issue is a common one, so best regularly save design tables.
- One thread got VAR/SW to repair file & then it worked, NO luck when I sent my file.
- so bit the bullet & deleted table, thankfully SW then created a CONFIGURATION for each size/option as in design table, I then Added a new design table and SW pulled all info into excel table. Then it was just a matter of checking everything was 100% and was all fine in the end for me.
