When you embed a Word document as an ActiveX document into another program file, such as an Excel workbook, the size of the program file increases substantially.


This problem occurs when both the following conditions are true:

  • A Word document is embedded as an ActiveX document.
  • The Word document has embedded links to other programs, like Excel and PowerPoint.

The problem occurs both when the Allow fast saves option is selected and when it is not selected.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Office 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
