Settings Location

Specifies the location in which Jet data source settings are stored. Settings can be stored in the local user profile or in a centralized SQL Server database, which allows for sharing of data sources, metadata, and other settings between users. See the Centralized Settings section for more information.



This page is used to configure Jet logging. Logging will negatively impact report performance and can produce very large files. It should only be enabled when directed by Jet Support, and should be disabled when no longer needed.



Disabling these settings can negatively impact report performance and is not recommended unless directed by Jet Support.

  Enable Batch Function Execution Instructs Jet to evaluate certain types of functions within a report in batches, providing a performance improvement under certain reporting scenarios.
  Cache Function Results Instructs Jet to cache function results while running a report. Jet functions may be evaluated 3 times or more during a report run, so caching the values during the report run improves performance. Cached results can grow very large and cause Excel to run out of memory for very large reports on 32-bit systems.
  Enable Excel Automatic Calculation When Restoring Formulas Instructs Jet to enable automatic Excel calculation when restoring formulas when entering design mode. This should make entering design mode or running reports from report mode faster.
  Disable Excel Multi-Threaded Calculation When Running Reports Instructs Jet to disable Excel multi-threaded calculation when running reports. Excel’s multi-threaded calculation can cause formulas to evaluate prematurely, resulting in errors and re-calculations.
