clientdatasets only need to synchronise when you ask them. Otherwise they
can remain in briefacse mode for as long as you want - running off a local
file dataset. So they certainly do reduce overhead across the wire - I use
them extensively in this mode. as for IBO controls - I thought for a minute
there that there were IBO controls as opposed to IB_ controls - my mistake.
I would still consider using normal TDataset controls and Clientdataset
sources in briefcase mode for such an exercise (if indeed the quantity of
lookups is extensive)

TClientDataset isn't compatible with TIB_Datasource, and also it needs a
TDataset-compatible Provider.

Notwithstanding, this is far from being a strategy for reducing overhead
across the wire, anyway, since it requires the Provider to exist at all
times, regardless of whether it is actually used...

What licence fees? (just curious...)
