Word 97 Large file corruptions

By mogliaK ·
Many of my users have been experiencing document corruption in MS Word97. Usually the doc's are fairly large 20-50 pages in length with pictures, charts etc.
To correct the problem I have them breaking up the douuments into no more then 20 pages.
Of course they don't want to do this.
Have any of you had to deal with this problem
and if so any recomendations.
Thanks

Had a user with the same file going corrupt twice in a week. The second time, I asked him about what he had done--he had saved this 7 meg file to the network, got impatient when it took more than 30 seconds, and 3-fingered the app.

More memory, bigger swap files, more free space on the c: drive. SR-2 for Office.

I just spent half the day doing global edits on a 53 MB document with over 6,000 pages, so it's not inherently Word 97.
