I have this document that I created in DOCX. It has several linked Excel (XLSX and XLSM) objects. The majority of the objects are on a network share, while some are on the local C drive.
Opening this file takes several minutes. If however, I save it in DOC format, it opens right away. If I save it back to DOCX, it takes several minutes to open it. If I remove the links in the DOCX, it opens right away. It takes even longer to open the DOCX if I'm not connected to the networks, but the DOC still opens right away.
This seems to be an issue with embedded link files.
So can some explain to me what the heck is going on? What's the difference between the DOCX and the DOC format?
