It’s been confirmed: The row limit was 66,000 which means they were using Excel from 2003 (at the latest). 

Unbelievable. With all the technology at our disposal - we use a programme two-decades old. https://twitter.com/DrRosena/status/1313187559321804801?s=20

Cheers Bailo, I'm shocked, though not yet convinced, even considering the underfunding of the NHS. There are ways to limit the size of files imported into newer versions which is why I'd like to know more.

Right from elsewhere in that thread it seems that the file format rather than the software version was or may be responsible. If a file is saved as an xls file it will adhere to previous versions standards

Sure like I said I'm not surprised that older versions of software and OS's are deployed across the NHS I don't expect that to mean later versions aren't

oh f***ing hell.

Daughter on the phone tonight in tears. The house she's staying at in Paris - friends - both parents were tested yesterday & came back positive today. So now the nipper has to get tested tomorrow with her friend & all the other kids there.
