    Default Report Designer hanging up

    I'm not sure if it's the report designer or my machine but after I make a few changes in a areport ihe program starts hanging up. I can select a field and the previous field is still highlighted or I can select a field and hit the delete key and it wont delete. But when I close the program and reopen it works fine for a while and then starts hanging again. Any suggestions?

    After every few changes, save the report, exit the designer, and compact the database. On some low resource machines, you can run out of resources fairly quickly if the designs are fairly complex or have numerous calculated fields. On one computer I use for testing, I see the same problem if I have a number of scripts open in the code editor. Closing the program releases memory so the problem goes away.

    Thanks Jerry, Thats what I started doing now. I'm running a P111 1.2ghz on an IBM laptop with 512 ram and a 80 gig HD. I wish I could work longer before saving and exiting. Thanks again for the help.
