    I am trying to access data from a table like
    "select col1,col2,col3 from table1 where name in ('A1','A2','A3',..,..,..

    If the number of elements in the where clause are more, i get a error
    message and it looks like there is some limitation in the number of
    characters in the query (with sql server i havent observed any limitation).
    When I try to avoid this problem by firing individual queries, performance is
    severely impacted. Any suggestions on how to get around this problem?

    I am using VFP6 and fire these queries through VFP ODBC driver from my VC++

    Thanks a lot for your time & support,
