8.2. Make Slow Forms Run Faster

Problem

You are not happy with the speed at which your forms load and display. How can you change your forms so they will load and display faster?

Solution

Access gives you a lot of flexibility to develop dynamite-looking forms. Unfortunately, Access also makes it easy to create forms that run painfully slowly. The Solution in Recipe 8.1 explained how you can speed up the loading time of all forms by preloading them. This solution discusses how to track down and fix various performance bottlenecks, thus improving form execution performance. We also discuss the use and misuse of graphic elements and combo and list box controls.

You should consider several potential issues when analyzing your forms for performance. We discuss here two common performance bottlenecks: controls involving graphic or memo field data, and combo and list box controls.
