Grateful for some comments on lack of performance of DELPHI link to
Access using ODBC. A developer I have talked to claim lack of speed
of such links (compared to VB) caused him to drop the idea of using
DELPHI. He has lots of vested interests in continuing with the use of
Access and switching to Paradox/Interbase is not on for his retail
clients. Personally I concur with him Access is an important tool
because of availability, security features, extent of existing
knowledge and functionality (e.g. endusers can get good additional
reports to supplement supplied functions by using Access tools).
I also like the performance, language aspects of DELPHI and would like
to see it work well with Access.
Thanks in advance for comments and insights.
