Looking At Performance Considerations and Links

Because your application has to go through an extra translation layer (the installable ISAM), performance is not nearly as good with ISAM files as it is with native Jet data. It always is best to import ISAM data whenever possible.

Opening the recordset using the OpenDatabase method might alleviate the problem, but remember that you cannot use this option with bound forms.
