Themes stored on Novell network are slow to redraw

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Solution or Workaround


Themes accessed over on a Novell Network draw extremely slow. In one case, the View took 20 minutes to redraw.


If you have any SQL tables in the project that are pointing to a database stored on the network, ArcView may be trying to write to a file on the network every few seconds.

Open the project. Open the SQL Connect dialog box and choose the DSN which points to the database file on the network. Click the Disconnect button.
