## Question

Why am I receiving an error for too many formulas in my version? I need to be able to add more formulas so can this limit be increased?

**Answer**

The error: "there are too many formulas in this version. You cannot add more formulas to this version" will appear in the Formulas tab** **when formulas exceed the default limit.

The default maximum number of allowed shared formulas is 200K, and the default maximum number of projected shared formulas is 10M on a *version by version basis*. The maximums are enforced to ensure optimal performance for the model.

- The number of shared formulas is equal to the number of Levels multiplied by the number of Accounts.
- The number of shared formulas is then multiplied by the number of periods in a Version to calculate the number of projected shared formulas.

Here are some things to consider when reducing the size of the model:

- Can the number of periods be reduced in the Version?
- Could the number of Levels be reduced to plan at a higher Level?
- If there are Accounts that have the same formula for all Levels, could those Accounts possibly be created as Metric Accounts?
- If the formula is not necessary in a certain Level, could it be removed?

After reviewing these items, if your model is not experiencing any performance issues, please reach out to Support and we may increase the limits.
