    System lag when in report design view

    anyone else get this?



    each time i design a report my entire system slows right down. i check my cpu usage and it goes up to 100% for long periods of time.

    i have a duel-core 2.16, 2.17 GHz processor with 3gb of ram just on my laptop. Should access be slowing my system down this much?

    Do you have a Local printer defined? It does not need to be attached but it needs to be defined in your list of printers. A network printer is not good enough.

    Access Report designer uses the printer driver when designing. Just define a Text only printer.
