Document Size RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a document that I have created. It is two pages containing a number of text boxes with normal Tahoma 10pt text. There are some images on the left of the document down the margin which are 1.5 x 2.5 cm. The image files are approx. 200K each (10 of). There is a user form with some VB code sitting behind it.

    Why would the document be 13MB in size? Is there anyway I can see a breakdown of what makes up that figure?

    Thanks

    Toni

  • Don't worry, I have resolved the issue and got the total files size down to 200K. I resized the pictures prior to insertion and I also remembered that the format for the document came from a Cut & Paste from Publisher, so I guess there must have been a huge amount of wasted white space that came over.

    Anyway, resolved now

    Thanks anyway
