In a client/server app, you open datasets as they are needed; and you avoid
Table components if you possibly can. IB is not a desktop database like doesn't read physical records out of a table but queries
tables in the database for a restricted ( = small as possible) number of
rows. The DB engine has to search for the requested pages, which might be
anywhere on the disk.

Also, you'd need to provide more info about what kind of connection this is
- local? TCP/IP remote? TCP/IP local? NetBeui?
