Forall with collect freezes app

Hi everyone,

I suppose this is pretty common, but I was wondering if there is a better alternative for it.

In an app I have two collections A and B. Both are exactly the same. At some point I want to collect all the records from collection B into collection A. Basically I do it like next:

ForAll(
    collectionB,
    Collect(
        collectionA,
        ThisRecord
    );
);

However, when the ForAll runs, the app completely freezes. It could be that collectionB has several hundreds of records, which then freezes the app for even a few minutes. When the ForAll is finished, then the app unfreezes again and all records from B are loaded into A.

Is there a better way to do it? This way is just not very user friendly, as for the users it just looks like the app is crashing.


Advice is much appreciated. Thanks,

Ski

Okay, I don't know why I was being so retarded. 

Of course why don't I just Collect the on collection in the other?

Collect(collectionA, collectionB);

At the end of some days you just can't think straight again. Sorry!
