Division of Years to narrow down contacts

This may seem like a weird subject but my database has about 9300 contacts in it and it's starting to slow down my calendar activities. I know others who have many more but this is my environment. I'd like to cull down the number of contacts I'm working with but I don't want to eliminate them out of my database as you never know when a contact may be needed or when the timing becomes right for them. Any suggestions out there? Like I've thought about doing a year end compilation of contacts and who I've worked with this year. But I also want accessible past year contacts

The number of contacts shouldn't slow down the calendar.  How many activities do you have scheduled each day?  Run Check and Repair from Tools > Database Maintenance (check both boxes).

Re: Division of Years to narrow down contacts

Most days I carry about 100 (if I'm lucky I get about 20-30) done. I'll try your suggestion tomorrow and let you know how it goes. One thing I did was to go back through my personal record and deleted alot of the past activities I don't really have to have in there. It helped a little. Plus if it gets slowing down I'll close the database and restart it and that helps. Thanks for the suggestion though.
