I agree that partial rows is a good visual clue that more data exists. I am
preserving the default behavior. Just wondered of some wanted the option to
get rid of them. (Before it was easier to have the partial row and now it is
a little harder.)

In case you folks didn't read the first post in this thread closely, the
addition of better navigation is being added to the dataset. Among these is
IBO's ability to automatically fetch rows from the end of the dataset
(without having to fetch rows from the start). You will need appropriate
indexes for this to work well.

Also, if you call Locate() and other things, like set a bookmark, define a
KeyLinks parent, etc. you will get nearly immediate navigation regardless of
the size of the dataset...
