We can write a procedure in a number of ways according to our coding priorities. Try to write a procedure that tells you the delivery day for corn syrup (the second Wednesday of every month) for a given year and month. Now rewrite the procedure so that it is optimized for:
Real execution speed
Create a form and place a button on it. Now write a procedure that prints to the debug window the number of fields and records in each table in the database when the button is clicked. Now add a gauge to the status bar to display the progress of this operation.
List the following:
Six ways of reducing memory overhead
Five ways of increasing execution speed
Three finishing touches that can improve performance
Now take a database that you have previously created and see if you can apply any of these techniques to it. Measure the before and after performance to see how well you have done!
