That really helps. Yes, grdInventory is a datagrid. Yes, I've seen the montrous __VIEWSTATE on the page.

As fas as the benefits:

1. I don't mind binding the data on every post since I'm using the drop-downs for filters and I figure that every post is more or less going to be unique.

2. Since I'm going to probably have very large pages on this search page with 20,000 to 30,000 row results I was going to deploy custom paging anyway.

And thanks for the tip about turning off the ViewState on controls unless you need it. There is now an incredible difference in performance after making the ViewState False for this datagrid.

Thanks Imar. Much appreciated.
