    I am having trouble editing an org chart in PPT2000. the file opens, but when i double click the chart to edit it, PPT locks up and eats alot of resources. I have tried uninstall and reinstall, but still no luck. Has ne one experienced any problems like this with PPT?

    thanks

    i did some research and created a very very ghetto solution.

    obviously it is a memory problem, one of my associates told me to delete "MSOPREFS.232" and "MSOCLIPS.232" and then orgchart.exe should run. and well this worked, once. so now everytime the orgchart is opened, these files are created. in order to run the program again, these files need to be deleted. so i wrote a batch file to do this for the computer user.

    this whole process is simply annoying, does any one have ne idea on whats going wrong, or how to create a perminiant solution for this?
