Hi, we currently have a page that creates a recordset depending on the request query string, roughly as follows:-

If Request("aa") <> "" Then
sql = "Where xxxx = yy"
ElseIf Request("bb") <> "" Then
sql = "Where dddd = cc"
etc

set db = server.createObject("ADODB.Connection")
db.open CONN_STRING

sSQLString = sql
db.Execute(sSQLString)
etc

If we replaced the above with stored procedures as follows, would it be fast or slower?

If Request("aa") <> "" Then
[run SP 1]
ElseIf Request("bb") <> "" Then
[run SP 2]
etc

Thanks!

assuming the SPs contained the same queries that would be generated by the code (and all else being equal), I doubt it would make much difference -- but if anything, using the SPs might be a microsecond or two faster (in theory).
