Set Variable Performance Hit



First off here are some details of my current setup environment:


FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.0v1
Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

Database Details:

  • FileMaker Server 10
  • 24 Databases
  • 67 Average Connected Users
  • Majority of clients connected through Citrix Xenapp




I currently have a button that performs a script that does the following:


  1. Based on a "access level" variable in another database, it performs different finds. 
    1. This access level is assigned to a local variable within the script
    2. Then If/ElseIf statements are used to compare this variable to see which find to use.

My problem is, when I run this script it has a 3-4second lag time for the variable to be assigned.


Also to note, this information is in a separate database.




  1. Is there a faster way to improve this performance?
  2. Is there a better way of doing this?
