I have a data file with 14 columns and 9,523,125 rows.

What online spreadsheet program (NOT A DATABASE!) can handle at least 9,523,125 rows?

Do you care about pricing? – Nick Wilde Jul 22 '14 at 18:06
I would prefer free. – user3503704 Jul 22 '14 at 18:07
Are you just listing data or do you need to do operations on it? If so what operations do you need? Sorting? formulas? – Nick Wilde Jul 22 '14 at 19:34
I need to sort the first and second columns from smallest to largest. – user3503704 Jul 22 '14 at 19:36
You really need a webapp? Not an installable program? – Nicolas Raoul Jul 23 '14 at 8:38

If you must you could give pySpread a go - it is not online but can handle up to 80 000 000 rows subject to possible memory limitations.

Alternatively you could look at Python + Pandas - the combination is very good for dealing with large data sets.

All the above are free and cross platform, just not online.

Are there any others? – user3503704 Jul 22 '14 at 18:49
@user3503704 Is off-line OK? (I'm pretty sure you won't find anything online) – Franck Dernoncourt Jul 22 '14 at 20:52
