I&#039m wondering if anyone out there has ever used the:<BR>Server.CreateObject("DERuntime.DERuntime") <BR>Object. And if you have any knowledge of the specifics of this object, like if I use this extensively throughout a site instead of writng ADO out by hand. Will my site take a performance hit by using the DE over hand written ADO/SQL code and if so how significant? I love using the Data environment, it makes my job so much easier and lets me get on to other projects faster. Im just not experienced enough to know what kind of performance issues are happening here, so if anyone out there knows i&#039d greatly appreciate your views.<BR><BR><BR>TIA
