We have a SBS 2003 Premium running the SBS SQL Server. Everything on the server works fine except when we come to print reports through the SQL database. As soon as we do the CPU goes to 100% and stays there for the duration of the time required to gather the information to produce the report which can be anything up to 3-4 mins during which time everybody and everthing else grinds to a halt.

The spec of the server is  a Pentium 4 - 2.8 with 4 gb of ram & 2 X 160 GB HD'S configured as RAID 1 on an Adaptec controller.

the query that is pulling the sql reqort does it entail peforming a full table scan or is it an indexed scan. if it is a table scan then this is why you are seein gthe large query time especially if it is a large table.
