Re: Form picture slow to load
Obviously, it is slower because it's being transmitted across the network
instead of just being read from your hard drive. Follow the best practice
recommendation and put the database application on each user's machine
instead of executing it from a server or remote machine. You'll likely see
other performance increases, too.

No. It is the main (opening) Form with no records, just a set of buttons
taking the user to other screens.
I have set the Picture property to an image. The Form stays open the whole
time with no need to requery.
