What command are you using? If it is:

    Try adding the REINDEX option to the end of it. What *may* be
happening is that for every record added, your index is being updated.
If you use this REINDEX keyword in the command, dBASE will not reindex
until done, then it will update your index tags. This will likely speed
up the processing as well.
