Long Pause when printing or exporting to Customized Word Template

    Hi -

    When I try to print or export an invoice from a template I've customized in
    Word, there's a pause of about 1 minute for each invoice before it actually
    loads up in Word. I'm running an older version of Word (from Office 2000
    Small Business), but it's fully updated with service packs and patches. The
    computer is a relatively fast machine running XP Pro SP2. The templates
    themselves load quickly if I open the files directly in Word, and Word
    doesn't have any startup Macros or anything. Anybody have an ideas on how I
    can figure out and fix the problem?

    Thanks,
    Noah

    I just timed mine. One minute - twenty eight seconds!. The time is from
    pressing OK in the print box until the printer starts to do something. I
    think this is a feature! I am using Office 2007 and OA 2007 pro. It was
    about the same time using SBA 2006 and Office 2003.

    My problem is not with printing - that happens fairly quickly. The issue is
    with transferring the data to Word to print an invoice.

    I assume you mean "export to Word". I timed that as well and it is a little
    faster, one minute fifteen seconds. I am using a modified Word template for
    invoices. The only doc that prints quickly on my machine is the " basic
    form" . If I use a Word template for anything, it takes over a minute
    before I can do anything else.

    This is frustrating features number 13.

    Yes, that's exactly what I mean. At least I know now it's not my computer
    just being slow!!

    It may sound a little twisted, but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one
    experiencing this. Maybe someone from Microsoft can help us out?

    Why in the world would they "fix" it. They do not see it as broken. The
    whole "office integration" thing is by design, and that "wait" is just part
    of the process to get the office program and all of the security and data
    from one packge into the other. They are too busy asking people to vote on
    features to put in the next version to look back and see what is wrong with
    this version. They do not understand accounting software from a small
    business standpoint. The entire invoicing functionality is broken. Good
    luck...
