Connection with MSSQLServer


We are building an application in Delphi 5 that uses a database of type
"access database project" (*.adp made with Access 2000).
We open it by ODBC and it works well, except that sometimes the amount of
time to connect is very huge. Sometimes, it's quick. Is there any parameters
to change in the configuration (client or server configuration, etc...).
We are NOT using SQL Server, just the client/server utility provided with
Office 2000.
