2610810 - SAP Excel Add-In Slows Down MS Excel


When you are using Microsoft Excel with activated Excel add-in, the add-in slows down the program. Opening Excel, working with it and closing it are slower while the add-in is running. When the add-in is deactivated Excel works faster and closes immediately.
