retrieve top 100 and then search in all records??

retrieve top 100 and then search in all records??

retrieve top 100 and then search in all records??


I have window- with dw object - when i open this window i retrieve all records in the datawindow (dw_1.retriev())

when user wants to search for a specific record i put criteria he enteres in valid expression(ls_filter)

then dw_1.setfilter(ls_filter)


my app works fine when server is on local net work

now it is required to put server on the net(cloud) so in open event i can not retrieve all rows as it take about five minutes to retrieve all rows(very very long period)

so in sql synatx of dw_1 I i added top 100(after select) that make dw to retrieve only last 100 rows

my question is if user want to search for specific record is this mean i must retrieve all rows to search and thus take long time again to load all row s

is this right??

or there are other solution?and how

Best Regards

RE: retrieve top 100 and then search in all records??

Don't retrieve any records until the user enters a search, then select the records based on the user entry.
