    Right now i am sharing an table in acces with MySQL. The only problem
    is that when i update the table through a form, the update takes about
    30 seconds. Is there a way to speed that up or should i use something
    other than MySQL. (The form updates one field for a few records)

    You could try one of several free Microsoft server engine. There is the MSDE
    that has shipped with every copy of office since office 2000. So, for the
    last 3 versions of office, there is a free 100% compatible version of sql
    server. You could try that.

    In addition, there is also the free edition of Sql server express.

    As to why your updates are slow, it could be one of zillion reasons.
    Perhaps your network is slow? Perhaps the server is configured wrong?

    If you have a standard good quality office LAN, and no internet connection,
    or some strange setup, then your performance should be very good indeed.

    I talk about some solutions, and how speed of your system is a factor here:

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
