ACT is slow



I use ACT 6.0 and it is very slow. When I update a field it takes 5 to 7 mnts. When I add new contact and tab over it takes time. Also when I do lookup both the by example and by keyword takes lot of time. How do I optimize my database?

Re: ACT is slow

Some questions regarding your setup:

- Are you accessing a local database hosted on your machine or a shared database hosted on a server?

- If a shared database, are other users experiencing slowness as well?

- Has it always been slow, or did this just start happening?
