Symptoms

Assume that you open a Microsoft Excel workbook that contains a connection to a Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010 server. The Excel workbook contains a large number of TFS work items. In this situation, you may experience usability issues and poor performance when you perform any of the following workbook operations:
  • You open the Excel workbook and it makes an initial connection to the TFS 2010 server.
  • You refresh a selected list in order to synchronize the changes with the work items and links that are on the server.
  • You publish the changes from a selected list to the server.
  • You select a query in order to create a new list that consists of TFS work items.
  • You use the built-in editor to create Microsoft Visual Basic code in the Excel workbook.
