I'm charting about 17,000 data points in Excel. Needless to say charting is slowwww.

I accidentally selected the wrong chart type (Bubble thing?) and it is loading forever. I did not save my last changes.

Is there any way to cancel the operation without crashing Excel and losing my work?


It's been 6 minutes and Excel is still loading.

UPDATE: After 10 minutes the chart appeared and I was able to change the type, but I would still like an answer for future references, if possible.

No there are no way.There are no cancel button or something.Probably you could write some macro for graphs you could include a cancel button there probably.
