Every time I try to do ANYTHING in excel I get a message saying 'Excel ran out of resources while attempting to calculate one or more formulas'. How can I stop excel trying to do this so I can get on with using it? I'm using 365 on a PC

Don't worry, I found the offending cell and deleted it. Now it works fine. Thanks anyway
