Need some info on a speed issue here.

Please correct me if I'm wrong!!!!

When you create a form with access or foxpro and start editing records, your connecting directly to the database as opposed to vb where I'm loading a dataset and displaying the data (disconnected mode). So editing/retrieving records will be "potentially" slower with vb then the others, correct?

If I'm on the right track here, is there a better way to speed up retrieving and displaying data?

If I'm leaving out need information, ask away. Any help would be great?

Plus, if there are any links that talk about this please let me know.

Thanks in advance!!
