I've just switched to VB .NET 2008 from MS Access 2007
I'm working as an applications developer for a number of companies. I make programs that access big databases through the Internet (by big, I mean a large number of rows)
In Access, connecting through the internet was so smooth since it reads only the current record while allowing searching, filtering, updating, etc...
When I used VB .NET, I found that the dataset is filled with all the records up on loading the form, and this would make the program extremely slow (it will take 10minutes+ to start!!!)
I read about using a datareader, but, does the datareader allow full sorting, updating, and filtering just like the dataset?
In a simple sentence, how can I implement the same data access model of MS Access?
