So we don't do business there ;-)<BR><BR><BR>I s'pose you could... you'd just have to ensure everybody has the dsn and the ado objects on their machine.<BR><BR>Perhaps they mean to drop the recordset DATA onto the client?
...if the DB is on the same machine as the Web server, this can be a really inefficient thing to do. It just means that all the data has to be buffered in two places on the same machine, eating up twice as much memory. Oh, granted, once the data is moved to the "client" side [which is actually the web server, acting as client to the db], the memory can be released on the DB side, but still...<BR><BR>And it isn't even always a smart thing to do when the DB server is on a different machine. It *REALLY* depends upon circumstances...lots of circumstances.<BR><BR>
