Default Slow performance

Hi All,

I've created a small database (10 Mb) , placed the data part on a WIN 2003 server (2.4 GHz, 1024 MB Ram, network 100Mb/s), the forms and code placed on the desktop (Client: Win XP prof. 2.4GHz, 1024 Mb Ram)
The data is linked with the client using the link option available in Access. All the VBA code written in DAO,....
Problem: If we run this datase (client / server) it takes a lot of time before a small recordset, query, ... retrieves some data, running both the databases on the client site, its extreme fast !!
Does anyone have a solution ??

I've created this database with Office 2003

Thanks for your help!

There are few things that can cause slow performance.
1. Do make sure all table are in your backend.
2. you have compacted the database
3. your backend database default open mode is in shared
4. default record locking is set to no locks
5. keep a connection to the back end open at all times

Recommendation: Depending on your activity and concurrent connection, size of database, upgrade to SQL.
