Thanks, guys.

Colin, I went ahead and signed up and added the link in a reply to his comment.

EDIT: So just as an FYI, my tests were run in SQL Server, which means that that's the performance you can expect from a passthrough query. I'll see if I can't get some free time to run tests in Access running a front end query against a linked back end this week or next. It could be enlightening to see which way it goes.

If you only knew how busy I've been lately, and how little of it has been working with Access. Got promoted a couple times, and my workload is WAAAY heavier now than it used to be.

Hey, Frothy! Congrats on the promotion. It is understood that when you get a promotion, people start expecting more from you. But hey, what is life without challenges? As long as the promotions carried extra cash in the deal, that's a good thing. (No, not asking about money, just commenting.)

Thanks. And yeah, good performance is always rewarded with more, harder tasks.

And yeah, there was definitely more cash involved.
