UPS Auto Export Very Slow to SQL 2005 database - Native ODBC driver.

We are running WorldShip 10 on XP SP2 and SQL 2005. When shipping packages the "Auto Export after every shipment" is very slow. It can take a 1.5 minutes. The import is fine, about 2 seconds.

We are writing general data to our database. Tracking, weight, reference number.  The server is in a different state but we are connected via T1 and our other shipping stations are exporting fine.

I do not know much about databases, but our DBA said that the database is fine. Does anyone have any insight or solutions?

I thought WorldShip 10 runs on MSDE 2000, not 2005. Did you upgrade? Check out this situation and resolution.

Thanks for the info. How does UPS WorldShip use MSDE? Our server is running SQL 2005. We use ODBC to export the shipping data to our server running SQL 2005.

As I understand, the WorldShip application uses an MSDE 2000 database. If your Export process has issues it is likely with this UPS database.  Perhaps UPS offers support in the way of re-indexing thier database? I apologize that I cannot be of much more help.

According to UPS The Automatic Export After Process Shipment option is ONLY recommended for users with a standalone installation of the Order Manager. If you have a network installation of the Order Manager with multiple users, run this process once, at end of day.
The documentation does not explain WHY they reccomend this, but here it is.
