    Hi

    I find that I can open existing Excel files quickly. I
    have no problems creating new blank files.

    However, once I try to close any file that contains some
    data, it takes a long time.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, how did
    you resolve it?

    When I close an Excel file that is located on a file
    server it takes about a minute for Excel to finish saving
    it. I'm running Excel XP in Windows XP on a Windows NT 4.0
    network. I finally had to turn off the "recently used file
    list" to eliminate the problem. However not having quick
    access to recently used files is just another annoyance. I
    only have this problem at the office. I have a network at
    home and I don't have this problem. However at home I have
    an NT 2000 file server.
