Recently we having issues with opening Excel files that are located on our file / domain server (windows server 2003). All the files are slow but some are worse than others to the extent that it says the program is not responding but it will eventually open (sometimes as long as 5 minutes). If we open the file through excel and open using the open and repair option they open immediately. Most items are being opened on a terminal server (also with Windows Server 2003) but we also run into the issue if we try to open the same file through a local computer.
Does anyone have any ideas. We have tried adjusting the File Type to list the "%1" but it won't hold the removal of the Use DDE.
I also saw a post about an ACT8 Registry change and ours is already at the recommendation.
