    doc lots of hyperlinks long time to save (Word 2002 XP SR3)

    I have a relatively small document of 24 pages made of 3 tables. Nearly each row in the doc contains a hyperlink, linked to files on the network. The doc doesnt contain much formatting.

    We have many docs of this type, and the other docs dont have save time issues which leads me to believe its just file related.

    when i make a small edit and save, the doc takes considerable time to save . Ive done the following to no avail.
    1. Open and repair (even thou the doc isnt corrupt)
    2. delete all the section breaks
    3. copy all except the last paragraph mark into a new doc.

    any ideas? i was going to attach the doc however its over the max size attachments

    Hi Diana... did you use styles in your table? If not, an option 'Keep Track of Formatting' may be the culprit. Try turning this option (new to 2002) off (Tools, Options, Edit tab) and see if the saving improves. This option tracks all the direct formatting on each paragraph in a document which may be causing the issue.

    If this does not work, I also found a MSKB Office files that are saved to a network drive take an unexpectedly long time to save in Word, Excel, Powerpoint 2002 and 2003 which identifies Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7x and a solution.

    Hope one of these help out!! trish
