    hi

    hope someone can help me !!!

    on my network everyone use office 2000.
    For some reason my secretary's word program seems acting a little bit strange.
    the thing is that she TYPE really fast and every time the word program does an autosave of her document and keep typing, it seems like the cursor leaves the page and type for nothing.

    She has to click back in the window to be able to type where it left when the auto save did his job....

    what could possibly fix this thing...

    PS i already did all the office and windows updates
    we are using windows 2000 also

    afaik - typical behaviour - word is making a save of the document, so it won't let you add to the document during a save

    You can turn off the autosave feature and ask her to save her work every five minutes manually.

    ....and you will find that in: TOOLS/OPTIONS/SAVE


    and either turn it off or adjust the minutes to your liking.

    well i did try all that and like i told you we are in a company.. so we cannot really take the chance to let the user save by themself their word or excel document.... thats why i havent removed the auto saved...

    Still thank you for the help .. if you have any other ideas let me know.
