Slow opening local tables in Access 2003

Hello all,

I have an annoyance that is common to all of the Access 2003
applications I manage. All of the applications are split front end/
back end with a front end copy on each client workstation and back
ends on a common server. They are all secured with workgroup files
also residing on the server. Each front end has a mix of linked
tables and local tables. The annoyance I have noticed is that it
sometimes takes 10 to 15 seconds to simply open one of the local
tables in a copy of the front end by double clicking on it in the
database window. When I double click on one of these local tables, I
notice a flurry of network traffic indicated by the LAN connection
status icon in the system tray, then 10 to 15 seconds later the table
opens. However, if I open the front end database, then disable my LAN
connection, these tables open nearly instaneously. All of these local
tables are small lookup tables (one example has only two fields and
120 records). I have all of the Name Autocorrect options turned off.
The FE's are in Access 2000 format. I have compacted, repaired,
decompiled, recompiled all to no avail. At first I thought it might
have something to do with authenticating me against the workgroup file
on the server, but even when I copy the workgroup file to my
workstation and connect to it there the same behavior occurs. Why
would these small local tables take so long to open when I am
connected to the network yet open nearly instantaneously when I'm not?

Is it possible (and if so, how) to set the default value of the
SubDataSheet Name property to None? In way new tables will not have
to be altere.

I am using the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver to link three relatively small MySQL tables to a Microsoft Access 2003 database. I am finding that the data from the MySQL tables takes a hell of a long time to load making any kind linkage with my Access data virtually useless. I have the MySQL driver setup in as a USER DSN. The MySQL data is sitting out on a server and the Access database is running locally. The network connection is very...

I'm using Access2000. I have just designed a database which seems to be operating very slow on a network. There are currently only a few records in it. Should I be compacting it now before it gets busy with usage ? The database has OLE bounded fields where pictures are linked to a network folder where the pictures are kept. Will this linking of pictures to respective records over time hinder the speed of the database ?

I've got a performance issue in Access 2000 running on Windows 2000. Opening a table local to the MDB takes about 1-2 seconds normally. If I log out of the windows profile that is normally used on the machine and log into another windows profile, the same table in the same MDB file takes 6 seconds to open. I have tried setting the subdatasheet property to and turning autocorrect off, neither one changes anything. Doing a compact/repair...

This is a new problem for me: I have some queries that open very slowly in design view. My benchmark query takes about 20 minutes to open in design view. That same query takes about 20 minutes to open in datasheet view. As an experiment, I deleted all rows in all tables; after that, the query took only seconds to open in both design view and datasheet view. From these facts, I conclude that Access is evaluating the query when I go to...
