I know that developers and power users are frequently asked to create horrendous sub-summary reports across thousands or even ten's of thousands of records. You might say it's OK to create the report if it involves one field and maybe a few unique values. How about if the management wants the report to sub-summarize dozens of local AND related fields on the same report with an unlimited number of unique values from an editable pop-up menu? You'll probably tell them that when they run the report they should take a very long coffee break. However, if you decide to use the web viewer you can run the report in as much time as it takes for FileMaker to flip through all the records - and that's really fast!
