Hi guys, <BR><BR>could using the wrong locktype on an insert or update cause access connections to grind to a halt? Here&#039;s the situation: I run a busy asp 3/access website (access uses a dsn - even though I know it&#039;s slower). Every so often the site just hangs (sometimes not for days, then BANG: three times a day). Still serves non-database asp content (e.g. a timestamp) and html, but anything asking from a database fails to load, but without returning an error or timing out.<BR><BR>I&#039;ve searched for memory leaks. Pretty sure it&#039;s not that. <BR><BR>The log files don&#039;t help. They tell me nothing. <BR><BR>Any ideas?<BR><BR>cheers, <BR><BR>Frank
