    Excel not responding (Excel 2000)

    When I open a ss with external links or file references, it takes 10 minutes. My neighbor takes 2 seconds. I get these dialog boxes with filenames. I have to click cancel...then wait another 4 minutes until another comes up...then cancel again....the screen is basically wihited out...the Not Responding message is on the Title bar line. None of this happens on my neighbor's machine opening the exact same entry. Very annyoing. What settings might I have that slow up this process? Why does the same entry come right up on her machine? It cannot be the add-ins I've got....ASAP, Find-link ...and we both have the same Oracle interface package working...I cannot understand this. Thanks for any ideas.

    Are some of the linked files on network drives? It sounds like you might have network problems that are causing Excel to wait through network timeouts on the linked files.
