I am using CDatabase, CRecordset through ODBC to connect to SQL server 2000. When I tried to query the database for a large amount of records, I find that the SQL server takes up a lot of memory. The SQL server does not free the memory after CDatabase::Close or CRecordset::Close.  It manages it own cache and after I restart the SQL service, the memory is then cleared. How do I allow the SQL server to free the memory once my query is done?
