Relinking Access to SQL tables produces slow loading forms.....

I am baffled by this one;

I am currently working on a database.  This database has an access 2000 front end and it is LINKED to tables is SQL Server 2000.  Everytime I make any changes to the tables I have to relink them.  This is not a big deal though, as it just takes a second or two.  I have been having problems with Form Loading Speeds.  After working on this for several days something has come to my attention.  Say I have Form1;  when I relink the tables in my database and then open Form1, it takes it 7 seconds to load.  I can leave access, reboot my machine whatever I do everytime I load it, it takes 7 seconds.  Until I go into Form1 in design view and click save.  Thats it ... I don't need to make any changes.. I just go into design view and click on the save icon.  After doing this I load Form1 and it only takes 1 second to load.  I can leave access, reboot the machine... whatever and it only takes 1 second.  As soon as I relink the SQL tables it will resort back to the 7 second load until I save again.  Does anyone have any idea why .... or what I am doing wrong or if there is a workaround?

Every forms may have an attached RecordSet which definition is stored in the form.
Relinking a table may have an impact on this RecordSet particularly if this RecordSet is using the SELECT * syntax.
==> If you are using selected columns only (not every columns), it means you will have to refresh your forms after refreshing your table links...

Hope this helps.

We are not the same person.  We work together.  Blschrock23 posted this question first and then no one answered so I reposted it with more points.  Not one person had anything helpful to say so we just exhcanged each others points so that we could ask another problem we were having.  We never found a solution to this one.
