Subject Re: [IBO] IBOTable vs IBOQuery
Author Carlos H. Cantu
The major reason I see is if you need to use any Table specific method, like
FindKey, FindNearest, etc... etc... or if you are using any 3rd party tool
that need to be linked to a Table (like Rubicon TrbXXXUpdate).

In big tables with lots of records use a Query and restrict the returned
data using the WHERE clause.
