    Word increases the file size by itself (Office 2000, W SR-1)

    Hi,

    I have a peculiar problem:

    A document functioning as a template, but not containing any macro, suddenly increase the file size to more than a Mb from 50 kb, and even further insertion of text can increase the file size to 7 Mb.

    The document used has a first page containing some field codes, like title, author and last-saved-date.
    When removing this page the size reduces to normal size, like 50-200 kb, depending on the content.

    Anyone who can tel me why it increases to drastically in size?

    (The document is collected through a http: address)

    Best regards
    Bj

    Some ideas:

    Have you checked whether Track Changes is on while tracked changes are not being displayed?

    Has the Fast Save option (Tools/Options...) inadvertently been turned on?

    If you display Field codes, do you see fields containing an extraordinary amount of information?
