Recordsets: Cursor Location: Client Vs Server: I am confused

I know that when the a recordset is opened this way, the entire data will be "transferred" to the client and I can close the connection. Am I right?

Set adoRs.ActiveConnection = adoConn
adoRs.CursorLocation=adUseClient
adoRs.CursorType=adOpenStatic
adoRs.Open "SELECT * FROM TB_USERS"
Set adoRs.ActiveConnection = Nothing

What I am confused about is, what happens in the case below? Is the data transferred to the client? If YES then how is the data kept in sync (its a dynamic cursor). If the data is NOT transferred, then what is the use of specifying CursorLocation as dUseClient? I have not tried this code. I just want to know whether I am thinkng it right.

Set adoRs.ActiveConnection = adoConn
adoRs.CursorLocation=adUseClient
adoRs.CursorType=adOpenDynamic  'CHANGE FROM adOpenStatic TO adOpenDynamic
adoRs.Open "SELECT * FROM TB_USERS"
Set adoRs.ActiveConnection = Nothing

Also what happend if I use a adOpenKeyset instead?

I just want to get a clear picture of what happens with these and all other possible combinations? Especially the use of adUseClient and when the data is really on the client.

Thanks

most options (like keyset and dynamic) are only usable when you use a server sided live cursor.

do you mean VB ignores the CursorLocation property when CursorType is keyset or dynamic ?

CursorLocation is the strongest property.

the predominant. If you set the CursorLocation to adUseClient, the CursorType is modified for adOpenStatic

you mean If I set the CursorType to Dynamic/Keyset/ForwardOnly it will change to Static, if the cursorlocation is set to Client?

Yes. Also not all providers (for exemple Jet) are supporting all ADO options.

Does that mean that the only way to get all the data actually to the client machine is to use Client cursor location and cursortype as static?

As soon as you open a Client-sided cursor, all the data is downloaded to the client.
