I have an excel spreadsheet located on a server elsewhere. The way I access the document is via a network share located on that server setup as a network drive on my computer. My computer is a Windows XP Pro SP3 ThinkPad laptop and I am running Office 2007 suite. When I open that excel spreadsheet it takes a couple of seconds being that it's located on a server outside the building but when I try and update the sources after I'm through with the changes I made to the document, the spreadsheet freezes forcing me to stop the excel process and reopen excel again. There are about 12-13 other spreadsheets linked to this one spreadsheet all in the same share (Folder) located on the same server, so that shouldn't be an issue. I was wondering if it could be the excel 2007 app because on excel 2003 when trying the same updating process it doesn't freeze but it lags for a couple of seconds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
