    ‘ Print the values returned by the ISAMStats function
    ‘ to the Debug window.
    Debug.Print “Number of disk reads: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(0)
    Debug.Print “Number of disk writes: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(1)
    Debug.Print “Number of reads from cache: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(2)
    Debug.Print “Number of reads from read-ahead cache: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(3)
    Debug.Print “Number of locks placed: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(4)
    Debug.Print “Number of release lock calls: “, DBEngine.ISAMStats(5)
End Function

    ‘ ISAMStats function to zero.
    Dim intI As Integer
    ‘ Reset each value.
    For intI = 0 To 5
        DBEngine.ISAMStats intI, True
End Function
Public Function UpdateISAM()
    DBEngine.SetOption dbMaxBufferSize, 50000
    DBEngine.SetOption dbMaxLocksPerFile, 500000
    ‘DBEngine.SetOption dbFlushTransactionTimeout, 5000
