Description sstory 2015-05-14 16:17:38 UTC
With a spreadsheet with 57080 rows and 15 columns, I encountered a Fatal error more than once while trying to Search and Replace (Replace All) within selection (selected the entire column) using regular expressions, searching for ^. and replacing with &. This was to get rid of the leading apostrophe in a date column of data imported from a tab separated file.
The error occurring seemed to be some sort of memory allocation issue.
This is a on a Windows 7 64bit machine with 12GB of RAM.

Also in attempting to format that same column to a custom date of YYYY MMMM-DD
I got an error that said something about osl thread create failed.

It also failed once when I got the date to convert, but then did a left justify on the column.

I've discovered that selecting the column and doing Data->Text to Column does the same thing when trying to get rid of the leading ' so that the column can be formatted as a date.

I think it was solved with
also the issue selecting the entire column.

With that regex all cell content is lost. Try with search .* and replace &
