That sounds like you did NOT do the very same thing. If you used a
repeat loop it sounds like you were firing off updates one after the
other - lets say 100 updates were handled as 100 executions. The good
Dr is talking about COMPOUNDING all those 100 update statements into a
single LC revExecuteSQL statement and firing just one off. This works
for SQLite and postgreSQL but not mySQL.

Back to your original question; I've used both Navicat and Valentina
Studio (free version) with success. Years ago Valentina was less
stable and so I'd use Navicat if things went a bit flakey, but these
days I find the Valentina UI more intuitive and screen space efficient
so rarely every start up Navicat.
