well, it is the same number of bytes to be read, so if the
O/S handles caching correctly it shouldn't matter (as the
time to make 100 calls vs. one call can be neglected).
But the original question was a bit silly (sorry sas).
Without information about record sizes, field sizes, how
many times the program will be run, etc., no reasonable 
answer can be given.

hence my answer: try it in your environment and with
your data and see.
