Help! Have been in touch previously with Gramps about data dropping from a database on append (receiving db only), and a situation where the data input seems to either "drop" or take a long time to "write". Gramps came back to problems with the network. Because I don't understand networks particularly, am having difficulty in explaining what the potential problem might be to my employers. My problem is that they are unwilling to spend a great deal of money on network specialists.
In the drop situation (very infrequent) data typed into the database simply disappears from the screen. In the timing fault, data entered into the database is there, but seems to take some minutes to be recognised. Network has always been very slow indeed, append queries take so long you could write a novel in the space, and the system regularly "hangs", although not particularly in Access. User had a very small hub which has now been replaced, with some changes to the speed. Am not a network expert, but have always suspected something wrong with the network/server. Can anyone out there shed any more light or make any suggestions???? Please? (my nervous breakdown is scheduled for this week!)
