    Hey. I'm working on a report for school and the best way to organize the data is to have a whole bunch of tables. They are approximately 20x5 in size. I notice that whenever I'm scrolling past these tables, Office gets REALLY slow. Is there some way to speed it up? (Other than using smaller tables of course.)

    BTW, I'm using the newest 12" iBook w/ 768MB of RAM.

    This is something that can not be avoided. I sometimes get stalls when typing. And its on a Mac with more than enough speed and RAM, and MS Office programs still stall. It is just something we have to live with.

    Anyone else? Or is this a general problem that most users face?

    Office, on even the most fastest machine will slow down, and for what seems like no good reason. Its probably just bad programming or windows code that was used to quickly get Office for the mac out the door. Sorry, there is no fix.

    What varmit said. Office 2004 is slow for me on a Dual G5 with 1GB of RAM. I get minor stalls when typing, applying formatting, using tables, etc.
