Updating remote references excel
A bad HP print driver install caused intermitent print problems and following an uninstall that had mapped but not removed a z: drive.The non existant z: drive left behind interferred with Save As process in ANY Office Application (like in Excel 2003) reported by Huvants Tuneau in email 2005-04-06.[journaling], [speech], [ext], [insert], [lastcell], [addins], [slowmacros], [speedup VBA], [recalculation], [openclose], [calc], [1-2-3], [memory], [leakage], [GDI], [objects], [pagesetup], [swapfiles], [VBE], [files], [elimxused], [defrag], [formats], [likeformats], [volatile], [checklist], [slowxp], [moreitems], [grayed], [temp], [timer], [reg], [related], [startup], [warnings], [search], [mskb], [slow], [updatesites], You are probably visiting this page because you were referred to it by someone in a newsgroup.Because of the nature of such problems, it is important to provide feedback when you solve your problem by replying back to the thread so that others can be helped and so that pages such as this can show relevant information.If the file is accessed only in one version, you don’t want to use this feature.Save As a normal *file to eliminate the feature from your file.
The save time for this large file as a normal XL2000 file is 10 seconds. If you are saving as Microsoft Excel 97-2000 & 5.0/95 Workbook *you will see the following Microsoft Excel 5.0/7.0 saving on your status bar where you normally see Ready toward the end of the save then you are saving in multiple formats.I frequently delete the files, but the surprise was that I thought I only had abour four single pages marked in favorites as “store offline”.So suggest also deleting the stored files occasionally to make sure that you are not storing documents you don’t want.Please also include your version of Excel and Operating system if you did not originally provide that information.
Wastes space (takes twice as much space, 75-100% more) and takes much longer to process a save.
