Taking a long time to open a workbook
Posted by Paul Blakeney on July 29, 2001 12:15 PM
I am designing a spreadsheet that is around 40 MB so far. It takes about 15 minutes to open the workbook. I notice during this time of opening the workbook, at the bottom of the workbook a message appears that reads "requesting virus scan", when the message disappears, the workbook opens. I presume that the reason that it takes so long to open is because the entire workbook is scanned for viruses. If this is true how do you get around this, or what other tips do you know about for making it take less time to open the workbook. Thanks for the help. Paul B.
