    There isn’t enough memory to complete this action.
    Try using less data or closing other applications.
    To increase memory availability, consider:
    – Using a 64-bit version of Microsoft Excel.
    – Adding memory to your device.

    Tried both, and neither fixed this issue for a Windows 10, Office 2016, 64 bit Excel.  It is only happening with 2 files also.  This is a newly imaged and fresh install of Office.

    I copy the file with issue to another laptop which can open it successfully with editable mode, then save it to another copy with different name. Move the new copy back to my laptop, open the new one and this time issue gone.

    del /F /S /Q “C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\*”

    4) Clean MS office cache. Here’s an article to find out how to clear the cache from MS office.
