Word object acting very slowly
Posted on 2005-03-08
I have this problem: I use a Word object, created by CreateObject("Word.Application"), in a VB6 application. All the commands I send to Word using this object, no matter the command, even parameter change ( like refWord.Selection.Find.Wrap = 1 ), are very slow, around 3 commands by second.
The problem appends on Word 2000 only, and only on half my test computers, no matter the Word patch installed.
I have the same problem with a Foxpro application.
My application send thousands commands to Word, it can up to fifteen minutes to execute a task.
