I was wondering what DB you were using for Blackbaud? Are you on the free SQL MSDE 2000, 2003? Have you upgraded to the standard edition? Did it improve BB speed at all? Has anyone made the jump to 2005 SQL yet? What is the size of your DB?
We are about to convert the last piece of Financial Edge to version 7, therefor we will now be able to upgrade our MSDE 2000 to 2005. I also found out that if your DB is over 1GB then upgrading to the full version of SQL will improve performance. Something I am going to try this summer.
