Shared spreadsheet slow over network
Posted on 2011-09-14
We have a client who is trying to open a shared excel document, however it can take over 3 mins to open from the network location on her PC, other users can open the document fine from different PC's and when the document is copied locally to the desktop it also opens fine.
All other excel documents that are saved on network locations open fine, even ones that are considerablly larger, it is just the one document that is affected.
We have tried to do an open and repair on the file which makes it open instantly however when opening normally the file will still take 3 mins or more to open.
We have also done a repair install of office.
The affected PC is a fully patched Windows XP PC running Office 2003.
