SWF overflow


I'm getting the following error message when trying to preview my dashboard:



SWF Function Overflow. The generated SWF will not function correctly because data dependencies go beyond SWF limits."

This problem appeared after I made use of many cells (a table of 10x200 cells) with formulas inside them.

Before that, while I was making my tests and only used a few cells and the .XLF file was 4Mb, I had no problem. Now that the .XLF file is 8Mb I see this error appearing.

Any idea of how this could be resolved (appart from using less data)?

Thanks in advance.

    With regards to swf overflow, this is an indication that the model/calculations are exceeding the limitations of the Flash Player. You are attempting to utilize MANY formulas on Excel - of which, may have big dependency trees involved. You will have to find a way to reduce the number of formulas (perhaps changing them to single value if necessary)....
