Part II: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_28390885.html#a39936844

... and although it works, there is a new problem. I made an import with 500 records. So new access.accdb is only 460 kb but now running ADODataset with AutoCalcFields needs more than 14 !! seconds to update the balance.

Is there any way to speed up like an excel tabsheet?

Next 500 points from me!

Thanks,
Hair fighting Tom

If it is no problem, can you post this database file here. (or made some test one)
Is ID and Date fields indexed? (Is ID set as primary key?)

As you have db under control (and this is for your own personal usage) - I suggest to add field (in example I add Balance) in which will be added real calculated balance.
I add two buttons - one for recalculate balance and one for just open table (for later usage - once you have balance). Calculating balance can be done after you enter new data - this works a little faster than using sub-select. Hope this help.

Thank you for this suggestion. This way was my first strategy, but I wanted to find a solution like Excel with AutoCalcFields.

Your first idea was very good and fast enough, but there was the problem with later added entries and an "useless" new ID. Your second response has now prompted me to another approach. I give each record a unique ID, containing date and a AutoInc time.

02.01.2014 00:00:01
02.01.2014 00:00:02
02.01.2014 00:00:03
03.01.2014 00:00:01
...
15.01.2014 00:00:01
15.01.2014 00:00:02
...
17.01.2014 00:00:01

This way I can use your fast CommandText from your first answer and there is no need, to loop through (perhaps?) >500 entries only at 'refreshtime'.

For your help many thanks and I think, 500 Points are justyfied:)
