Refreshing an SQL Database

I have a program that accesses an SQL database on a linux server.  It connects fine and displays the database correctly, the only problem i'm having is when I have the database refresh.  The function i'm using is datPrimaryRS.Recordset.Resync, and when it does this it freezes the program for about 5 seconds.  I don't want it to freeze for 5 seconds, and I want it to resync the database faster than that as well.  I don't see why it has to download the entire database again (if that's what it's doing), it just needs to look for changed/new records.  Any ideas of anything else I could try?

Thanks!

i ended up using individual queries instead of searching through the whole database with the rs search command.  Your answer lead me to that conclusion, so points go to you.  Thanks!
