Delay in opening a file
Operating system version
Description of the issue
I have updated my operation system to Lion and my old Filemaker v6 wouldn't work anymore. So I have downloaded the current version on trial. I have two files linked to each other. A database of clients and a database of job sheets with details of every project since 1994. The job sheets make 5.4mb.
The problem I have is that the job sheets file now takes over a minute to open, it used to take a second or two. (The clients file takes seconds).
What do I need to do to speed this up? I'm hesitating to buy the upgrade.
Steps to reproduce the problem
'Open' or click file from within or from outside Filemaker
File would open in seconds
Takes a few second over a minute to open
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

I've tried re-booting etc.
Sit and wait
