I have an application which manipulates a fairly large Access database (25000 records, 51Mb). Code snippets include:

Many lines of code missing, just to give you an idea of the code used....
CONN_STRING = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + DATABASE_NAME;
oCONN = new OleDbConnection(CONN_STRING); // Set oCONN object
oCONN.Open(); // Open the oCONN

Saving...
oDA_new = new OleDbDataAdapter(sSQL,oCONN);
oDS_new = new DataSet(); // Create the DataSet
oDA_new.Fill(oDS_new,"Products");
DataRow oDR = oDS_new.Tables["Products"].NewRow();
oDS_new.Tables["Products"].Rows.Add(oDR);
oCB_new = new OleDbCommandBuilder(oDA_new);
oDA_new.Update(oDS_new,"Products");

With the old VS a database with a few thousand updated records would save in around 60 seconds.

With VS2005, the same application takes about 4 hours !!!!!

I ahve not changed any references between versions. Have you any idea why this has slowed so much ? I am now rewritting the program using SQL Server 2005 but until the program is fully developed I wish to use the old version without the 12 hour turn-around !

Help !

Fully qualified answer needed and positive outcome to receive points. Thankyou

Hummm....   Which version of visual studio was the original program written in VS2002 (Framework v1.0) or VS2003 (Framework v1.1)?   Did you do an "automatic upgrade" or a by-hand rewrite?

BTW:  Since Microsoft gives away SQL Server Express, I'd highly recommend that you convert from Microsoft Access

Thanks for your comments. The original app was written in VS2002 1.1 and a .Net 2.0 upgrade made no difference to performance.

As mentioned in the question "I am now rewritting the program using SQL Server 2005 but until the program is fully developed I wish to use the old version " so a SQL Server Express based project is under development.

Yes it was an automatic upgrade.

Wait, now I'm confused....   I thought it ran fast before the upgrade, and only after the upgrade it slowed down

The .Net 2.0 upgrade made no difference (upgrade patch from MS). What DID make a difference was upgrading from VS2002/3.Net to Visual Studio 2005.

I have made great progress with SQL Server 2005 so may cancel this question now anyway. Thanks for your help.

I've written dozens of VS2002/VS2003 applications that read/write to Microsoft Access.  I've never had any performance problem with "converting" to VS2005.

Do you still have the pre-converted application to run as a test?

Oh well, It doesn't matter now...
