sometimes I think this com issue has gone a little overboard.<BR> I use COM+<BR> for inserts/updates/deletes but still use asp pages for drop-downs and<BR> searches. In the case of a search where you are building a<BR> dynamic search<BR> string and the user is looping through 10 or 20 records per<BR> page, doesn&#039;t<BR> it cause overhead to put this in a component? Would you have to use a<BR> disconnected recordset?<BR> Anyway, I guess my question is, does it really make sense to use<BR> components for select statements? I am sort of braving this<BR> new territory<BR>by myself so any input would be appreciated...<BR> Thanks, Kristina <BR><BR>
