Timing Database Performance

Hi,

    I'm doing a bit of performance testing to compare inline SQL with stored procs. I need a way to time the execution of the stored proc from VB. The timer control is a pain in the ass - what's the easiest way to do this (down to the millisecond if poss, thousandths will probably do).

All I want to do is call a sub to start and stop the timer, e.g.

StartTimer
set rsResults = BusinessObject.getResults
lngTime = StopTimer

Something like that would be cool.

Cheers, Nik.

Option Explicit

Declare Function timeGetTime Lib "winmm.dll" () As Long

Dim lStartTime&

Sub StartTimer()
  lStartTime = timeGetTime
End Sub

Function StopTimer() As Long
  StopTimer = timeGetTime - lStartTime
End Function

That should do it.
