Opening an Excel file stalls

By kweinhold ·
First file opened after Excel is opened is fine. However, opening any subsequent files seems to cause system to stall or takes up to 5 minutes for open dialog box to appear after initiating command. The only thing done to this pc recently is the installation of a new print driver. This is an NT box running Excel 97.

Opening an Excel file stalls

by bishopca In reply to Opening an Excel file sta ...

I had this kind of thing happen to a user. He had filled up his hard drive. Right click C drive in explorer and choose properties. If you have less than 200MB start by making more space.

If he has space available give more details. Does this happen in word? Are you trying to open from a network or local drive? What size are the files?...
