Why is scrolling through a list so slow?

This is bizarre. I have a database that deletes all records nightly. Imports via API records from a JAMF database, and displays the records in a list in FileMaker.

 

JAMF (mobile_device_applications) > FMP

 

So the list has the Display_Name, Category_Name, Total VPP Licenses, Used VPP Licesnes, and Remaining VPP Licenses.

 

It imports about 1060 records (not a lot).

 

When I scroll down the list, it appears like the data is importing (the screen is blank and begins filling in). After I scroll to the very bottom, I can scroll either direction quickly. It is the first time I scroll it appears to be loading the data. Yet I know the data is all there. Why is there this 'data load' preception happening, which makes the initial scrolling extremely slow???
