I am having major problems concerning speed. I have an oracle database that is set up to allow users to search through via intranet. i set the page up using asp code but at times during the day i get time out errors. i think the problems are due because the database on our server takes so long to open all of the records(roughly 5000) and six fields they are searchig by. The search page works fine until 11:30 or 12, after that it is all down hill. Anybody know of any tips or tricks? I used response.buffer, and response.flush throughout my code but they only seem to help with computers running IE 5.
