I am trying to edit a complicated report, after every click I have to wait 2 seconds before i see the result.
This wasn't a problem in Access97 or 2000.  I now have a faster XP machine, but the simple editing of a report is much slower.

Is there any way to speed this up?  I assume this is bloatware as it tells me all sorts of useless information such as my labels are not attached to a text box.

Any help would be appriciated as it is driving me mad :(
