Re: [MS_AccessPros] Look up tables

 

Jim-

It would be better to have static tables with appropriate indexes defined.  On the reload, do a DELETE * followed by an INSERT of the updated data.

I am going through the macro and finding out what I can delete of the queries that build tables. I will let you know after I get to that point. I did notice that there are some make table queries and then update and append queries for those tables. I will need to see how I can work around that.

At this point, I agree that a button or a separate form to run the queries instead of on open event is a much better choice.

I agree, Duane, but if the current code runs slowly, then he may be better off loading the data once to local tables when the app opens.  I suspect the load process can be improved, but it may still not be enough to get good performance from the remote tables.

I would use SQL statements or saved queries for the row sources. If PeopleSoft is a database server, I would use pass-through queries for greater efficiency.

Follow up question,

My boss has retired and I have inherited one of the databases they worked on. It is really slow when the database opens because of a macro that runs 15 queries on load of the opening form. most of them are queries that create lookup tables from various downloaded tables from PeopleSoft every morning. These are not like the local lookup tables I described before but created every time the form opens. It is a silly situation. These tables that are created are for drop downs on the forms in the database.

So I am thinking that I could get rid of these queries by using select statements on the row source instead of creating tables every time the form is open. Not very efficient I think.

What is the groups thoughts on using select statements for the row source which are essentially the same thing as the make table queries run in the macro.

Thank you for your advice

Jim Wagner
