Remote Desktop and Excel (Office 2003)

Hi,

I recently installed office 2003 on my desktop (runs xp service pack 2)

I sometimes work remote desktop onto my desk machine but have noticed that
when I try to scroll down in excel (or word) it takes ages - as if it's doing
one line at a time. Its very very frustrating.

Has anybody else come across this problem or have a fix for it??

Many Thanks,

Sounds like screen refresh.. What is your "Experience Level" set to and what
type of connection do you have to the remote machine (speed)?

Also check connectivity speed... Scrolling in a RD session like that
is fairly bandwidth intensive...
