My results on a single Windows 2000 Professional SP4 machine:
- In SQL Server 2000 Query Analyzer: did not run within 5 minutes runtime, I do not understand why.
- In SQL Server 2000 SP4, via Access .ADP file: 1,418 / 15.62,
- In SQL Server 2005 SP2, via Access .ADP file: 789 / 15.62.
Hope, this adds to the discussion, Leendert.
