Subject Why fetch all the records
Author Rohit Gupta

that doesnt answer teh question. WHy does the table do that.... it does not
make it compatible with TDataset. And If I knew I had to change all teh
forms I wouldnt have switched over.

We do have extensive search capability, but this is the way our clients liek
things, they have for the last 15 years with DOS and CPM proggies.

Since when does it become logical to change the app to suit the foibles of
the tools ? :-)

Anyhow, the problem still remains... its isnt just the main table. some
forms have 6/7 tables - the dratted thing fetches all records in most
