Hi John ,

Just me again ...
Our IT guy ( Lewis ) has managed to get our Imagic booking system finally up and running whilst I have been off on leave .
Unfortunately now I have returned I am finding that although it is now on my computer it is EXTREMELY slow to the point where it is impossible to process bookings .

I will log a job for our IT Dept to look at it again but I do remember Lewis telling me previously that our database is getting too big ( 460mb ) .
He queried if there was any way of making the database smaller?
I forgot to ask previously .

Could be something to do with the problems I am now having ?
( I really wish I was still running my previous old version of Imagic with it's no problems ) .

Hope you can be of assistance once again .
Thankyou in advance .

Regards
Sue

Hi Sue,

Thanks for the question on system performance and database size.

Good to hear everything is running.

Yes, that database is far too big. You would want to perform a 'Compact and Repair' this will reduce the database size. You can either use something like MS Access or if you don't have that we have a utility you can download.

To use:
1) Backup your database.
2) Exit iMagic Hotel.
3) Download and launch the utility.

Regards, John
