Interesting to read, did you ever compared the performance on "big" datas?
Up to now I havn't found a performing way how to loop through 20.000 records
in a flat file for generic selection with a search term compared with a
select - where. Looping through 20.000 records and searching for a sting
with lineoffset() to select a list of datas wasn't fast enough for me.
Perhaps you found a better trick?
