Dear all,  I am new to Postgre SQL, and have serious performance problem with Postgre SQL 8.1 as backend and MS Access 2000 / 2003 as front end application. After searching archive in this maiing list, i found usefull information like below. But i still have some big question :
   
  1. How can i know my ODBC driver version ?
  2. How to run tcpdump ?
  3. How to see Postgre SQL log, to see how fast it runs  Access sql command ?
  4. Some times when user input data, my application show "#delete" records while no user delete record. How can this error appear ?
  5. Could someone share his VBA code to connect from Access to PGSQL ? I think maybe something wrong with my VBA code that caused the "#delete" problem.
   
  The application run on both Access 2000 and Access 2003. So i use MS Access 2000 file format MDB, running on A2000 and A2003, connect to PostgreSQL 8.2.3
   
  Thank you !!!

Hi,    I'm using MS Access, ODBC and Postgresql in several places, with big tables as well, and I don't have any performance problem.    I have always been using the default driver parameters, and it always worked for me. But maybe you should play with that a little bit. And I think a few performance tuning tips have been discussed in this list in the past.    One thing you have to check, is wether you are using the MS Access 2000 format, under MS Access 2003. There is huge performance loss in this configuration. Convert your database into the 2003 format, and problems will disappear.    Second thing: have you the opportunity to run tcpdump somewhere between the server and the client? You can activate the log of the server, too. This should give you useful "timing" informations.    Cheers,    Philippe
