I have a problem that is getting worse by the day. I'm using Capture CIS 16.5 and use Microsoft Access as my database. I'll open the schematic capture and the "place database part" resulting in a inordinate amount of time before the database opens. This morning it took me over nine minutes to get into the database. I've tried compacting the database, no effect. I have determined that the problem doesn't involve the net work because I placed the database locally and there was no change. I can't believe that I'm the only one in the world to experience this problem so I'd like to hear any questions or comments regarding my predictament. Any solutions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Have you tried connecting to the sample MS Access CIS database that comes with Cadence software - BENCH.MDB. If you experience similar performance issues then this probably has to do with ODBC drivers installed.
Recently someone had a similar performance issue with MS Access, however the database was hosted in USA and they were accessing from overseas. When they switched backend to the Free MS SQL Server Express edition software the speed went from several minutes on MS Access to less than 5 seconds.
As Steve mentioned I would recommend contacting technical support for a resolution.
