Office 97 docs freezing in Office 2000

By howellc ·
I recently deployed Novell5.1/Win2K/Office2K from Novell3.2/win95/Office97 here at my office. All service packs on all systems/softwares have been implemented. The problem is that the old 97 files that were transferred from the old server take approx 5-10 minutes to open. New files created on the server are OK. Any suggestions.

Office 97 docs freezing in Office 2000

by Shanghai Sam In reply to Office 97 docs freezing i ...

my first suggestion is to check the pathway for these files. check the .dll, and be aware that you are working on a better OS and APP. best thing to do is for you to save the applications from 97 to the 2k format and if that works fine. Beware that Acess 2k is not backwards compatable. all other office is.
be sure to defrag now as well. make sure that the files have not been scattered all over you HD and it has to search for them..
