Access database slow Follow



I've an Access database (accdb) on a network share with around 1 million of records.

I'm using Bartender 2016 to access it without any problems. When I access the records through the Bartender file, it takes 1 seconds to show the selected record with a filter.

When I am using 2021 version, it takes 30 secondes to access the same database with the same bartender file and same filter.

Have you already experienced this issue ? I've followed this KB but it's not working...

Thanks for your help.

PS : if I remove some records from the database, the time to access it decrease, that should implicate that a lot of data are read to access database...

The documentation linked above is not correct.

You must enter "Preferred Access Provider" for Access databases (.accdb). Excel is only for Excel sheet.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Seagull Scientific\BarTender\Preferred Database Providers]
"Preferred Access Provider"="OLE DB"

Just restart Bartender and now the record accessed is displayed in 1 or 2 seconds. Same as before. No need a reboot.
