opening large file? Help
Posted by Natalie on March 08, 2001 8:49 AM
a new peer to peer (only 2 pc's)with Office 97 Professional 10/100 network with hub w98se - new PIII PC's with 128mb RAM.
I can open all other excel files across the network except ones created by copying a certain original for each month. These are rather large (5mb). They are workbooks with several sheets. Excel hangs everytime. Is this just the nature of the beast with large files or should I be able to open this and it is a problem in the workbook itself? The sheet was written several years ago by the accountant, it's probably been through numerous upgrades and conversions, but has always functioned fine. It will open as long as it isn't across the network.
HELP this is our most critical file!
