Problem with Right Context Menu Entry

A few weeks ago I was asking about the performance of ADO against an Access 97 mdb, and later, taking advice, I implemented DAO to compare. However, now I have had occasion to test my project on Windows 2000 and the performance is way, way better with ADO. Same VB6 program, same CPU/Mobo, same query, same databas... 31 May 2010 14:11
