    Adding Criteria to a Calculated Expression in a query dramatically slows performance

    I have a query that runs normally in a fraction of a second. One of the (many) fields is DaysWaiting: Date()-DateValue(FirstBookedDogs([ID])) Admittedly quite complicated but when run, say returns 10 records in 1/4 of a second. So all the DaysWaiting numbers are show instantly so I assume...

    Any way to create a document to sign & return?

    Many thanks for your reply, I do manage to do what I want similar to Docusign with Adobe DC but as I say not fully automated & quite a lot of manual work, if it were only a few I needed to do a day that would have been fine but doing 20 or so is laborious.
