IBM does not support CA for Windows so IBM is wanting users to move to ACS. IBM wants us to move away from greenscreen SQL and use the ACS SQL Scripts. Well there have been many issues I have found with this ACS software. But this case concerns the F4 Prompt to get the field list. On the IBM greenscreen the prompt is instant. I knew it would be slow on the PC side but not this slow. We prompt several, several times while creating a single SQL statement and the ACS app takes about 10-15 seconds each time (sometimes it has been 25-30 seconds) to display the field list for us to choose the fields we want to use. If IBM wants us to use this tool it needs to be faster. It should either cache the field list on the first prompt, or it should maintain a file/field list based on the default libraries in the setup. If you want people to move to a product it needs to perform well. It's usually the little things that kill a great app. Joined files really kill time when using the prompt.
