Calling SelectNodes on the attached document returns ~6200 FieldStart nodes. This is causing a knock-on slowdown in our software as a later processing loop runs that many times.
Our client tells us this document has been “macro-enabled” by a company called Softeryx. I’m not entirely sure what that means but I can’t see anything particularly unusual in the file at first glance.
Can you provide any guidance as to what the issue is here and how I might work around it to avoid this slowdown?
