I wanted to filter records based on whether a string was found in one of the ten fields of the recordset. I tried to use the vbscript function InStr() for getting this done.<BR><BR>Unfortunately, ADO refuses to recognise this function.<BR><BR>So I tried the same with DAO, and it worked. And so I included the same in my new web application.<BR><BR>Please guide me whether using DAO would hamper performance of my application in any way of speed, security or number of connections, etc.<BR><BR>Thanks.
