Word 2003 entering data into Tables very slow?

Posted on 2008-11-06

I have many users entering data into a Table in word and it can take up to 20-30seconds to update.
example: When typing a sentence you type away and it can take up to 30 seconds to update the table with the text.

Can anyone help with a fix.

    If it still happens, try it in Word safe mode (start > run > type winword /a and hit enter). If it works there, then have a look at this:
