Office 2003 slow to open and save files on the network

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
My users are using office 2003 on Vista Ultimate PCs.  Their files are on a Dell PowerEdge Server running Server 2008.  Word files open instantly but it takes 30 seconds to open Excel files and in some cases it takes up to 2 minutes to save changes to word documents.
