.Recordcount again....

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have created a Windows application using an access database. Things worked OK until I got over 100,000 records. Not things have slowed tremendously.

I am looking for a more effective way to get a record count.

Here is the CURRENT code

        Dim tmpRecCountr As Integer
            Dim dbConnGetDBRecordCount As OleDbConnection
            Dim dbCommandGetDBRecordCount As New OleDbCommand()
            Dim strPath As String

            strPath = Support.glbDatabaseName
            tmpRecCountr = 0
            dbConnGetDBRecordCount = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "DATA SOURCE=" & strPath)
            dbCommandGetDBRecordCount.CommandText = Support.glbString
            dbCommandGetDBRecordCount.Connection = dbConnGetDBRecordCount
            Dim dbDR As OleDb.OleDbDataReader = dbCommandGetDBRecordCount.ExecuteReader
            While dbDR.Read
                tmpRecCountr = tmpRecCountr + 1
            End While

        Catch err As System.Exception
            Support.glbErrorMessage = "ERROR: GetDBRecordCount - " & err.Message & vbCrLf
            MsgBox(Support.glbErrorMessage, MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "- ERROR -")
        End Try
        Support.glbRecordCount = tmpRecCountr
