Subject:Re: Performance problem opening database on SQL-server

I now tested against two other databases on the same server.

One with the collation:  SQL_Scandinavian_CP850_CI_AS
One with:  Finnish_Swedish_CI_AS

This is the same collations as on the productions databases

I get the the same result!!

One shop, no problem. The other, connecting to Finnish_ Swedish is no 
problem but the SQL_Scandinavian is slow!

Really good news as it gives me something to work with!

It must be something with the SQL-driver but when I check I find:

- Windows version the same, 1909 18363.657
- Version of the sqlsrv32.dll is the same, version 10.0.18362.1, dated 
march 2019
- Version of a file called sqlserv32.rll Is the same

I donít know if there are any other files that can be involved?

Changing the collation of a database that is 6GB in size and has been 
running without a single problem for 16 years (!) is not something I 
want to do!

I see two options:

- Install a new computer and keep fingers crossed it will work
- Trying to reinstall the ODBC-driver.

Checking Microsoft site

MS say the version is 17 which makes me a little bit confused as the old 
one on the computer is version 10Ö.
