Why does my Mac keep telling me that there is not enough memory when I need to open Excel?

I have Excel installed on my iMac.

I only use this rarely, mostly when I have grants to write for my students.

When I try to open Excel, to look at an old document, I get the message that there is not enough memory, even though my Mac right now has 74 GB available.


I really, really, really need to access these files, so am hoping for an answer to this puzzle!


Thanks so much!!!

iTunes, Mac OS X (10.6.8), using Time Machine external hard dr
