I'll be a little more circumspect next time so you can feel good about it!

Hey, bite your tongue and keep banking those checks!

In 1999 my sister-in-law was given a laptop, a company ISP account, and told to stay home until she'd fixed her company's Y2K COBOL issues. My BIL the CPA still has a goofy smile on his face when he tells the story about the W-2 she brought in that year.

COBOL is her ticket to ER...

I wonder what Microsoft processes their payroll on.

Re: IT experts: anyone familiar with slow DDE problems?

soupcxan, I've seen similar issues. I believe they were related to network file redirectors. Whenever a file open is needed, there are several "redirectors" to process through to figure out where the file is. DDE just multiplies the open requests.

For example, we have NetWare in my building, but most of the company has migrated to Active Directory. So they push down settings through enterprise management software beneficial to the AD network; this often has the side effect of bumping out my NetWare settings.

In my particular case it's usually a DNS search suffix (division.company.com and nw.company.com) that got replaced with AD search suffixes (corp.ds.company.com and corp.company.com). That changes, and then all sorts of little things start breaking.

Yeah, I know you said the files are local, but it seems like sometimes the redirectors are run through, anyway, and if they're timing out on the network it may be slowing you down.

Re-check all your settings for any network access. Prefered server, DNS search suffix, workstation DNS suffix, DNS servers, WINS servers, etc. There's a place where you can re-order the redirector search, but I don't recall offhand where that is.

We found out that Windows will throw users into the "debuggers" group for local security. Putting the user back into local administrator group seemed to help the DDE issues and general slowness.
