Excel 2007 very slow copy/paste

Hi, I hope you can help me. One of my users is having problems with an excel sheet (it is only 115Kb), Whenever she wants to copy something from it either to another excel file (the document is one that is copied and amended for the next week) it takes about 5 mins to copy the data. It is the same if the info is copied into Outlook, whether it be the whole document or a snippet of info. The document has no formulas in it and it is a simple log wherby she adds data to it each week and at the end of the week she copied the main fields and creates a new file for the next week.

I cannot understand why it is taking SO long to copy and paste such a simple document / data contained within such a simple document. Any advice is appreciated.

First thing to try is a Diagnostic:

Running Microsoft Office Diagnostics from within Excel/Word

Click the Microsoft Office button
Click on the Excel/Word Options button to bring up the Excel Options dialog box (at the bottom of window)
Click on the Resources button in the left hand pane
Click on the Diagnose button in the right hand pane
Click Continue
Click Run Diagnostics

Running Microsoft Office Diagnostics from the Start Menu

Click on the Start button
Click All Programs
Click Microsoft Office folder
Click Microsoft Office Tools
Click Microsoft Office Diagnostics

See if that helps.
