Reducing ram usage

I have a VB app that because of the amount of work it has to do takes a very large percentage of the server's ram which practically brings the server to a halt.  Is there any tricks to reduce ram usage in VB.  Any help would be great!  Thanks!

I would also agree with the previous suggestion as well you may want to use light weight controls where possible. Use an Image box instead of a Picture Box, Labels instead of textboxes if you just need to display values on the screen, avoid using a bunch of different fonts on your forms. And like the last comment said always always release any objects you have set by setting them to nothing.

depends on the code you've got so far/what the program does.

 Avoiding variants where a type like integer can be used is a good one.  

Avoid large arrays of public variables etc.

I agree with Deighton on avoiding public variables and arrays.

I just wanted to note that it's a good practice to free up everything you don't need anymore. I mean objects, escpecially large automation objects and also recordsets.

It would be helpful to know what kind of tasks your program does.
