Got it. So there is no real advantage to using PDO in this case? I have no need for transactions and all the database stuff is pretty straight forward, selects, inserts, updates, etc.
One more question, how do I prepare a select statement using an in statement when I build that in statement dynamically? Select * from tbl1 where fld1 in (x, x, x, x, x, x, x...) and I am not sure until runtime how many x's there will be. Thanks for the input.
