Good afternoon!

I have a spreadsheet in '.xlsx', with a size around 150Mb and containing
400000 lines.

I have never seen a 150 mb functional spreadsheet before. I'd like to see
the file because I'm relatively sure that a database is what is
needed (especially if there are a ton of functions in it and nested ifs)

I would recommend trying to open the file and leave the computer going over
night. The issue is that LibreOffice has to use xlsx filters to open the
file, this is going to be slow when you're talking about 150 megs. Open the
file over night, save it as an open document format (ods) and I suspect it
will be quite a bit faster.

But, again, I bet that file needs to be a database and not a spreadsheet...
