Marie, in a mail date Jul 6, 1998 you say:

CEA has some .ini files in the windows directory. Specificaly in the 
ceagsg.ini (segments), for example, you have the recordlimit paragraph, 
which should have a reasonable value. Anything more than 100 makes 
segment visualization seem to take an eternity to have the screen 
results. This value sets how many records are retrieved from the AS/400 
database at a time. Other .ini files have similar values, which may be 
set up so that you take less time to show the screen. Look at them.

Also, if you are using Netsoft router to connect to the AS/400, think 
seriously about changing the connection to TCP/IP. This connection is 
now available to Mixed Mode, and there's a BIG difference between the 
two - TCP/IP is much faster.

Also, in the central menu of BPCS, go to "Options" -> Workstation 
settings, select all applications, select the "Client" tab, and 
de-select the option "List records on Startup". Also, each person should 
have its filters (set in the menu, after you enter any application-icon) 
set so that they don't need to retrieve ALL records, but only the ones 
which are interesting. This may result in faster screen showing.

If nothing of this works, you can go to ogs - ogs.ssax.com, use your 
name and password, and search SSA's BMR database. Some BMR's were built 
because of CEA slowness. One of them may apply to the specific case of
