There are a lot of things that can cause long queries. Different database run at different speeds. The queries can be malformed and require too much searching. The database nay not be indexed. The host may be overloaded, the LAN may be saturated, the workstation may not have enough RAM, even the LAN cable can be marginal causing excessive retries. Give us a little more about your configuration, type of database, number of records, etc. and we'll be able to narrow it down.

One of my colleagues had a very complex query in Access 2.0. Progress remained at 0% for minutes. He asked if performance could be improved. I gave him the following tip, resulting in a performance of 20 sec.

Check the SQL code.
Remove any instance of the word "DISTINCTROW".
This will probably improve performance thousandfold.
(You only need DISTINCTROW if the underlying tables have no primary key or other unique index defined.)
