97 converted to 2000 becomes very, very slow

I have a whole bunch of Access97 databases which we are 
converting to Access2000.  Most of the converted simple 
ones perform okay.  Of course, a few will need more 

In the status space at the bottom of the screen, I see 
more 'Calculating ...' and 'Running query'.  And this 
really slows down the performance of a few of my 
databases.  The databases, in Access97, ran fine.

Is there any way I can find out what is being calculated 
and what queries are being run?

Just opening tables in Access2000 is slower than in 

Also running queries with linked tables also become 
somewhat slower.

Are there options I can turn off to speed up the 

Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated by me and 
my users.  Thank you.

The three most common performance problems in Access 2000 are:
  - LDB locking which a persistent recordset connection or an always
open bound form corrects (multiple users)
  - sub datasheet Name property set to [Auto] should be [None]
  - Track name AutoCorrect should be off

If the problem is for everyone when starting up the MDB then it likely
needs a decompile.

For more information on these, less likely causes, other tips and
links to MS KB articles visit my Access Performance FAQ page at

Excel 2000: File format of Unicode text files
In Excel it is possible to save a worksheet as 'Unicode text'. Is there a description of the file format of these unicode text files? The problem is that there are some quotes (") added, if the cells content e.g. a line feed or quotes. So there may be some additional cases, where unexpected content is added by Excel and this would be very helpful to know. Thanks -- Rolf Keller I don't think MS has documented their file format publicly. Your choices may be to do the experimenting yourself to deduce their format, or to use a macro to create the Unicode text file. Here...

ADO versus DAO and Windows 2000
A few weeks ago I was asking about the performance of ADO against an Access 97 mdb, and later, taking advice, I implemented DAO to compare. However, now I have had occasion to test my project on Windows 2000 and the performance is way, way better with ADO. Same VB6 program, same CPU/Mobo, same query, same database. The only thing that is different is that the W2K PC has 1gb of RAM whereas my standard Win 98SE PC has 512mb. Is the performance increase due to W2K being a fundamentally different OS, maybe using threads automatically, or other 'speed up' tricks? Could the extr...

Excel 97
I have a form with some textboxes on it (textbox1 and textbox2). When the user tabs from textbox1 to the textbox2, I validate the contents of the textbox1 in the textbox1_AfterUpdate event handler. If the content textbox1 is invalid, I want to keep the cursor in textbox1, rather than tabbing to textbox2. I have tried using textbox1.SetFocus method in the textbox1_AfterUpdate and textbox2_Enter event handlers. Neither worked. What is a good way to do this? Thanks. you can use the textbox's Exit event... Private Sub TextBox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) If TextBo...

Columns in Publisher 2000

Convert Array Formulas to Regular Formulas
I have a workbook that is linked to a query from another (legacy) application. I have formulas that do further calculations with the query results. Everything worked fine in Excel 2003. However, I recently upgraded to Excel 2007 and now, all of the formulas that work on the results of the query turn into ARRAY formulas (and they should just be regular formulas). I've given up trying to figure out what is causing the issue as the legacy application is no longer supported.

Access 97 to 2002 conversion

When I click Debug, it takes me to the following code: "DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70" I've looked at the help menus and it still lists acSaveRecord as an intrinsic constant.
