Thanks for the replies. I kind of thought this was the ib support
group. I will say that I have had no problem with the delay when
using BDE. I guess there are some things the BDE does better then
IBObjects. All I did was the quick conversion from BDE to IBObjects
with greplace as was recommended in the guide. It's possible there is
some quirk with my home computer. I've always suspected there was
something not quite right about it. Thanks.
