 Like any good answer; it depends<g>

 The number was never been pushed and I don't believe it's hard and fast.
Access/JET decides based on the record source if it will fully populate the
record set or not before returning to the form.

 That's why .RecordCount is not guaranteed to be accurate.  All you can
count on is if it's > 0, you have records.  To get an accurate count, you
force Access to populate the whole thing by doing a .MoveLast.

Subject: [AccessD] Bound Forms Question

When Access opens a form bound to a table, how many records does it read?
All of them or just the first *n* rows? Does performance of the form relate
to the size of the table?
