The first one is NEVER use a combination of linked tables with local tables in your queries.

Instead download the server side tables as temp tables in your app or upsize your local tables to SQL Server and do the processing on the server in it’s entirety.

Hello, I’m having problems with some update queries in access 2013, I used those queries in access 2010 and they used to run very fast, but now they never finish.

Don’t do massive update queries using Access If you ever need to update a lot of records at once, say, increase pricing on all items by 10%, you’re much better off doing the update via a pass-thru query or on the server directly. Limiting data to just a fraction of records at any given time.
