dbgrid. What I need to know is the dbgrid clever enough to call say 20
records at a time from the server, or will it want to download the whole
2meg table before it displays it ? If so is there an approach to minimize
the traffic over the slow line.

It isn't DBGrid with the smarts on efficient record fetching. It is how the
dataset it is attached to responds to its need for records. If you have
supporting indexes, using the TIBOTable component can be very efficient in
how it deals with records for browsing a table, of any size for that matter.
