    RecordSource Set To Query vrs SQL? (a2k (9.0.3821) SR-1 Jet 4.0)

    RecordSource Set To Query vrs SQL?
    a2k (9.0.3821) SR-1 Jet 4.0

    Where do I get the best performance?

    1. Form RecordSource set to a Query
    2. Form RecordSource set to actual SQL

    Thanks, John

    In theory, setting the Record Source property to the name of a stored query is better, since Access optimizes the execution of stored queries.
    In practice, you won't notice much difference, except perhaps if you have an extremely complicated query. I regularly set the Record Source of a form to a dynamically generated SQL string in code, and it doesn't seem to have a noticeable influence on performance.
