Hello, all.

I'm inserting PowerPoint slides in a Word document by linking to
them so that someone can edit them from the Word document.
The original Word document was about 1 MB and the
PowerPoint file is about 1 MB as well, but the Word document
with the links to PowerPoint has grown to about 6 MB.

Can you tell me why this would happen? The file size is majorly
slowing down my poor processor.

I used the Edit -> Paste Special option to link to the slides.

Here's the field code for a slide link:
{ LINK PowerPoint Slide 8 "path:\\filename.ppt." "395" \a \p }

Thanks for any pointers.
