When following query is pulled up, it takes about whole 1-2 minutes to come up.
"inquiries" table has 17000 records, "contacts" has about 7000,
"individual_contacts" has about 16000.
It has gotten worse once I upgraded to 4.0 and latest MyODBC.
Clients are separate machines (mix of Win98 and WinXP). Those 20K records is
what feeds the Access97 form, pull down list filters out some and pulls up about
3K and people just start typing a name and then (since there multiple inquiries
for some clients) pull down the list to pick inquiry they want.
