I host my FMP database via FMS16 and I noticed a very huge delay when I enter data on the fields that the auto-complete existing record's check box is checked.

I'm not, in general, opposed to a PC for our server; it is I.T. involvement and complexity that has me uneasy. This is a huge corporation with an offsite help desk, and two (overworked) local people.
