    Default Files vs Database

    I have an assumption in my mind that accessing a short file is more resource friendly (and thus quicker) than accessing a database. Can anyone either confirm or disprove this?<BR><BR>Let&#039s say I&#039m just dealing with 1 column of data, and maybe a small predefined number of rows ( &#060; 20 )...doesn&#039t it make more sense to just do it within a file...if I&#039m not concerned about keeping a past record?<BR><BR>--<BR>Karl

    Why not do a test and see? Time it over multiple opens and see which is faster.<BR><BR>(<BR><BR>Richard
