> > 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.

None of your workstations should be scanning your DBC/DBF directories. These directories should only be scanned after hours using a scheduled scan.

Thank you Ken...no scans being done. You also took the time to comment on this migration situation back in Oct/Nov for me - thank you. Are you interested in consulting on this? I have had an overwhelming response already via email.

I AGREE 100% with the John 8:33 verse! I have been free for over 33 years now!
