URGENT: Using "Index" and "Seek" in DataEnviroment

Posted on 2002-03-26
Last Modified: 2010-05-02

I use DataEnviroment to work with my Access 2000 DataBase. How can I look for records in a certain table using "Index" and "Seek"? "FindFirst" etc work very slowly. That's why I don't want to use it.

You can send me an example to my e-mail: slava_site@hotmail.com  or to publish it here.

Thanks in advance.

Here is the comparison of Seek opposed to Find... methods, with sample codes. Further below are some other links to articles for you to see if you can find other options as well...

Here's a solution for the slow functioning of FindFirst, or at least a way to work around it....

Here's some more information on how to use Seek:

Hope this helps!

If the operation is not frequently use, then try to use "Where" condition in SQL rather than use FindFirst.

Hi baltman,

All those examples do not work with DataEnviroment. Can you please give me an example for DataEnviroment.


Hi ryancys,

I will use seek a lot, that's why I need something that works very fast.
