The Access mdb can get large and cause problems if it nears the Access 2GB limit. Have you tried compacting the database? This can help enormously to reduce the database size and needs to be done on a regular basis (we have discussed adding a feature to do this automatically from within Path in the future). You can find this in Access 2007 under the Manage menu (under the Office button) – there’s a similar option under the Tools menu in Access 2003. Let me know if this helps.
