THAT is an indication that the design may be poor.
As Alan has said you may just need indexes which means you need to check with
the application code as to WHAT fields you are using to look up data. However
I suspect that the application is keeping things open which is causing all the
growth. THAT is a problem I had in the early days of designing with Borland
tools and is something that is not easy to correct if you are not a programmer :(
