Works: Documents Open Slowly over a Network

PSS ID Number: Q50995 Article last modified on 06-10-1996



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 2.0


Microsoft Works 2.0 documents may open slowly over a network, especially when compared to other products, such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel.


The reason for this behavior is twofold:

  • When you open Works, the entire program must be loaded into memory on the local workstation. Other products can dynamically allocate themselves, loading only necessary portions of the program.


  • Works loads files by using network commands in an inefficient manner, locking themselves to blocks of memory.
