> Looking for a highly experienced VFP person who can figure out why our VFP 5 application (very, very large, written over more than 12 years) experiences inconsistent (hard to duplicate), SIGNIFICANT, slowness when we try running it in VFP 9. We want to migrate to VFP 9 but the slowness is a MAJOR ROAD BLOCK. We understand that the reporting will be slower and that is okay. But screens/forms that open in a few seconds in VFP 5 will take 4 or 5 times that long (inconsistently) in VFP 9. Sometimes these same forms/screens open in roughly the same speed as in VFP 5.

Before you pay someone to do this, make sure that CPDBF() for your tables is the same as CPCURRENT() when you're opening them.
