I have a problem when I open certain spreadsheets that are on a server. My
laptop slows to a crawl. I don't think it's an Excel problem, I think it may
be more of an Excel configuration problem. I can't find anything in Excel
that isn't right. It takes me 20 minutes just to open the file and another
user can open it in 2 minutes.

What might I look at in the system tools etc that could tell me specifically
where my problem is? As in, do I need more memory or something like that.

Thanks

Strange. How big is the file? How much memory do you have. How much memory
does your colleague have? Do you run any other programs? I found this KB
article which may shed some light
