Hello folks:

It has been a while for me to asking the list for help and please forgive me 
if I ask the wrong questions or offend anybody.

Please allow me to refresh the list's memory about me.  I am very, very new 
with the AS/400.  I did get a lot of tips from the list of where to start 
with learning about the AS/400.  I entered in the AS/400 world for almost a 
year now, and have learn somewhat to get my job done.  I am creating a 
database using Microsoft product, automate and retrieve up-to-date data 
directly from the AS/400 files through the use of ODBC linking.  I am 
somewhat successful in several small databases, BUT, I have the problem with 
retrieving a big junk of record for the company database.

The volume of data is growing every day, so of course, eventually what 
volumne I get for this week will be different than last week.  But the past 
week and the weeks before that, the retrieving process would take no longer 
than 5 minutes, but today it takes hours and have not retrieve the 
information out of the AS/400 yet.  I used ODBC link to the AS/400 files, 
then use PC queries to filter the data that I need and put it in a temp 

I am still somewhat a new comer to these territory.  I am very grateful for 
any advise, suggestions or tips to show me lights to my problems.

Greatly appreciated, Vuong.
