If this is not the right location to ask this question, please refer me to the correct one.

 

Using Excel 2016 (Office 365)

Microsoft Excel for Office 365 MSO (16.0.10730.20304) 64-bit

 

We are trying to troubleshoot why an excel spreadsheet with formulas is taking a long time to calculate (15 minutes). There is another computer we tested on and it calculates in about 45 Seconds.

 

Two difference I noticed on the computer that runs the calculations faster, are:

Security settings for Linked Data Types

and

Security settings for Dynamic Data Exchange.

 

I am including a screenshot.

 

On my computer, I do not have those 2 additional options.

 

I have already enabled DDE using the registry:

Any suggestions would be helpful.
