ADO addnew slow

I have a problem here. I'm using ADO in my VB programming. I created a function to add new record into a table("result"). It able to add 500 records into the table but takes 40 seconds to run the process. If compare with DAO method, it can run very fast(5 second). My PC is Pentium III 800Mhz. why ADO run so slow compare to DAO? Please help me? here is my code.
Thank you.

Function Connection()
Connection = "Provider=Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data source=" & App.Path & "\books.mdb;persist security info=false"
End Function

Function RunSearch()
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim query As String

query = "select * from IdentMaster Where IdentNo=15000 ORDER BY IdentMaster.IdentNo"
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset

rst.CursorType = adOpenStatic
rst.Open query, connect_string, , , adCmdText

Dim rst1 As New ADODB.Recordset

With rst1
    .CursorLocation = adUseServer
    .CursorType = adOpenStatic
    .Open "Result", connect_string, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTableDirect
    .Index = "PrimaryKey"
End With
If rst.RecordCount = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Record not found!", vbInformation

'delete all records in Result table.
Dim oRs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim adoConn As ADODB.Connection
Set adoConn = New ADODB.Connection
adoConn.ConnectionString = Connection()
oRs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
oRs.Open "Delete * from Result", adoConn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

    i = 0
        intCount = rst.RecordCount
        For i = 1 To intCount
            If rst1.EOF Then
                With rst1
                !IdentNo = rst!IdentNo
                !MachineManufacturerID = rst!MachineManufacturerID
                !MachineTypeID = rst!MachineTypeID
                !groupid = rst!groupid
                End With
            End If
        Next i
End If

Set rst=nothing

End Function

The script is slow because you executing your addNew method in a loop, if the loop is big, then more you're suffering to wait the code to execute finished.

As review your code, seems that you want to select the records from a statement (select IdentMaster) and dump it to another table (Result), so why don't you try using Select Into statement? More easier and i think even faster way to code can be executed!

so, try like:

Function RunSearch()

Dim query As String

Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
Set conn = New ADODN.Connection

query = "select IdentNo, MachineManufacturerID, MachineTypeID, groupid into Result from IdentMaster Where IdentNo=15000 ORDER BY IdentMaster.IdentNo"

conn.ConnectionString = Connection

If rs.state = adStateOpen Then
   conn.execute query
end if

Set conn = nothing

End Function

Is this what you want??
Ryan ChongCommented:
Try use the Execute method in Connection Object to insert your data, instead of using addNew method, this will make your process faster.


SQLstr = "Insert into mytable (fld1, fldN) values ('value1', 'valueN') "
conn.execute SQLstr

try do necessary change for your above scripting.

Hope this helps

agree with ryancys, really should use "insert" statement
Had the same issue last time and in my case the addnew command turned out a lot faster then the insert statement because the recordset remains open.
What you should do is to put the .UPDATE command after the loop instead of updating it after each record.
