I have Office 95 installed on my networked Dell PC.  I work with documents that are sometimes between 75 - 100 pages long.  These documents often include a fair amount of graphics.  When I save a document, I often get the Out of Memory error or Can't save to the drive.  The PC has 32MB RAM, and the drive I save to on the network has over 700MB free.  My local drive also has over 250MB free.  What could be the cause of this problem?  Thanks for your help in advance.

This is a problem in the Office 95 thing.. I've heard of it before.... The thing is that the Office wants so much resorses that sometimes it take to much and then desides that now there is too little left to be able to save ;-<...What you can try is this:
Close all other applications to free memmory....
Try to make the document less complex (e.g. take out graphics , minimize font use....)
Make smaller chunks of the dokuments and then make links...
Save as another format (e.g. RTF)

Good luck ...Allways
