Can anybody give me quick hints as to how I can increase the performance of my transactions. What I do is I open e recordset, which fetches around 500-600 records. I have heavy processing to do on these records, which are primarily extensive calculations. Because of these heavy calculations, the whole process takes a lot of time. I loop thru the recordset and process/updat each record. Can anybody throw some light on how I can increase my performance? Any help is appreciated..
