v9 personal - local PC ODBC very slow

We are just starting to investigate the potentional of qlikview and downloaded the v9 personal edition so we could show something meaningful / useful to our bosses.

I made an ODBC connector to the target database which seemed OK but record retrieval is horribly slow ( around 20 records per second )

The target table has over 200,000 records and I need to read this in a few minutes, not hours.

Anyone got good skills in troubleshooting slow connections?

Suggest you try the following to establish is the ODBC connection is indeed slow.

1. Try to connect to the ODBC through Excel -> External Data and see if the ODBC is slow?

Alternatively you may try the following

1. Try to get a few fields fields before doing a Select *

2. Try an OLEDB Connection instead of ODBC
