Word files grow

By 2081580 ·
I recently purchased a few dell latops with Office 2000 programs installed. I removed the 2000 programs and installed Office 97 pro SR2. We have a 79 K document on our server and when a person copies the file via Explorer, the file size remains thesame. when the person does a save-as the file grows to 880 k. The same file and content will save as 79 k on any other computers in the building that ahve not had 2000 previously installed. Any ideas?

It sounds like your installation of Office 2000 defaulted to having the "Allow Fast Saves" feature turned on. It can cause file bloat. See Microsoft's Knowledgebase Article I Q111277.
