Hi Chris,

Thanks for your reply.

When I do the query in FM it's really fast--far less than a second.

For my testing I've been using this:

FMSA on a Mac G5 2.0Ghz dual-processor
Mac OS X Server (Tiger) running on a Mac Mini 1.25, which is also  
running the WPE.

Here's my question: since the WPE is on this lowly Mac Mini, would  
moving it to the G5 make things faster? If so, how much faster? I  
know that it's supposed to be best-practice to put the WPE on the  
machine with the web server, but in this instance, is this slowing me
