Have you tried compacting your database? That should help
it a lot, especially over the network. As I have noted before
(and this is my opinion) MS Access is not a suitable multi-user
solution. Anyone trying to run an ISP on a jet database with
more than 500 users is just asking for a lot of problems. :(
