If you know you are just gonna use one single record ( like when displaying the details for a single article for example ) then be sure to specify MaxRecords, since it makes the drivers optimize their memory allocations and therefore make the call much faster.
Dim oRS, oConn
Set oConn = Incdb_GetConnection( Incdb_GetConnectionString(0))
Set oRS = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
oRS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
oRS.MaxRecords = 1
oRS.Open strSQL, oConn
