    Go to related record: Speed issue


      I am developing a database that manages events. Now it has 613 events.

      I have a layout that displays (in list view):

      - Today events

      - Future events

      - Past events


      A global field stores current date.

      I use the "Go to related records" script step to show only today, future or past events using 3 different auto-relationship:


      Today events….…. TODAY = EventDate

      Future events……. TODAY < EventDate

      Past events………. TODAY > EventDate


      In the relationship I have marked the option "Sort by…" event date.


      The database is hosted by FMS12 in a Mountain Lion MacMini server with a 100/10 MB internet conexion.

      The solutions works as expected but I have a speed issue: it takes a loooong time to display the related records even disabling the sorting process.


      I have tried aswell using the ExecuteSQL function: I store the list of matching records in a global field and then I use this field in the autorelationship.


      Do you have any idea of how can I improve the speed in this solution?

      The event layout contains only simple data fields (no container, no graphics, no Web Viewer…).

      Thank you.
