I have an ODBC connection from my Windows 8.1 desktop to my IBM AS400 system i machine. I link tables from the AS400 to Microsoft Access for queries/reports. Just a few months ago I went from running queries which took an average of 10 - 20 seconds to produce the records to now its taking 4 to 5 minutes. The queries I'm running are monthly queries so its generating the same about of data plus I don't have a lot of date on my system i to begin with. Any ideas as to what would cause this delay?
A couple of things I've already tried: I've turned off the tracing option in the ODBC setup. I've also changed the WebClient start up type to Automatic instead of Manual.
Also, the OS system of the IBM is OS 7.1. and my windows OS is 8.1.
