This is an interesting one. I have a large company wide split database (Front End / Back End Setup) that tracks the progress of all our projects. I would like to set the front end interface with some sort of trigger to detect if the user is actively browsing the reports / forms. If they are not for a given period of time (no activity), then close the database program. I am finding that several users are opening the database and not closing it when they are done. I am finding that when there are several idle(inactive) users in the database that this is slowing down the data access for the other active users. I have about 20 users that can access the program at any given time through their local front end copy of database.
I’m sure you experts can give me an idea or two on how to control this to free up system resources for the active users…your thoughts please.
