I've a  the database (SQLBase 6.1.2) runing in a Netware 4.11 Server, my client is a w95

Problem:

I want to make a query that is an Insert of 45000 rows with the Access 97 (I apply the service release sr1 of Microsoft)
, the query uses a vinculate table. The source is a .dbf and the destination is a table of SQLBase 6.1.2.

When I run the query the Access crash and doesn't notice me, and the SQLBase 6.1.2 continues working with others clients

The same query with a server SQL Base 6.5 in a Windows 95 works ok.

Environment:

Server:
 P166 with 32 Mb of Ram a 1'6 Gb of hard Disk, the length of the database is 17 Mb. (Netware 4.11)

Client:
 P166 with 32 Mb of Ram. (Windows 95)

ODBC Driver

  Centura SQLBase 32-bit Driver-NT & Win 95
  2.12.0000 INTERSOLV, Inc. gpgup09.dll

any idea, is enough memory on the server?

Access tries to place any single operation into a single transaction.  Depending upon the sizing of your system, and things like the number of locks and size of the transaction log settings on your main SQL server, you may or may not get your inserts to go when you have such a large volume of inserts in question.  I'd check the size of your transaction log on your server as the first most likely problem, it may not be big enough.

You could break down the volume by creating more than one query to perform the work, limiting the volume with where clauses on your input table.

The solution is to upgrade to "Service Pack" PTF5 (Centura) into client and server.
