access 97 on W2K3 slow file browsing

We upgraded our W2K for a W2K3 server at the beginning of the year.
It's purpose is to handle TS distribution of a couple of MS-ACCESS 97
stored locally on the server.

The server is stable. But there are some slow downs within the apps.
Anything involving a file access is slow.

Let's suppose that I want to open a file from within MS-ACCESS.
I first launch Ms-ACCESS, and then using the File/Open menu option,
the File Open dialog. If I click on one of the servers local drives, to

browse their contents, I can wait up to a minute for the contents to be


When browsing the disks using Explorer, or even from within Outlook XP
present on the server) everything works fine.

I have tried to tweak, tune, search for dead drive links, etc...
So far nothing has resolved this slow file browsing from within

Any ideas would be most welcome

I've got a catalog (table) of products (records), which will undoubtedly grow to over 5000 records in months.

I guess I'll use a LIKE operator to search the field with the product's long description. Problem: Noise words. i.e. - and, but, it, its, or,...

Hi, I am working on a project that requires a Windows Service which performs the following file transfer functions. 1. It monitors a specific local directory on a Windows 2003 Server. 2. When it finds files with a specific extension, it queries a SQL Server database to determine what workstation will be the destination of a File.Copy. 3. It copies those files to the appropriate workstations on the LAN,

I need to convert a 17mb access 2000 db to Oracle and house it in a Citrix farm. The issue: we have never converted an Access Db to Oracle but can probably use Oracle's Workbench to assist with this. Also - the citrix folks do not want us to keep the FE in Access as the queries and other activities consume a lot of power. The users will be in 3 different offices across the globe all accessing the 1 Oracle DB in Citrix. Does anyone have...

Hi all, While working on an Access UI to a MySQL database (which should be a reasonable, low-cost, flexible interface to the DB, better than web-based, much less costly than a full-fledged .NET app or so.... is it?), I tried measuring the bandwith consumed by the Access/MyODBC/MySQL link, which came out to be, er, quite high. I fancied it would be interesting to look at the queries Access throws at MySQL through the ODBC link, so I...

Here is a nasty issue that has been giving me grief for the last couple days. This requires good knowledge of IIS, MSXML, and Windows/NTFS permissions. We have an existing ASP (VBScript) app hosted on IIS 6.0 (W2K3). We need to restrict access to specific users within our company network. To reduce development effort I figured the easiest solution was to enable Integrated Windows Authentication. However once I enable IWA and disable...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
