Alex,

When you say "other Process" - are you talking of via a Dataq
or somenting like that?

We use triggers extensively.  If you follow a few simple guidelines, there
is no noticeable performance "hit".  The most basic and important rule is -
ONLY PERFORM ESSENTIAL LOGIC WITHIN THE TRIGGER PROGRAM.  When possible,
perform NO logic - just pass the buffers on to a separate process.  If the
trigger program calls other programs, or opens and closes a bunch of
database files, or performs the unpardonable sin of causing another trigger
to fire, you will NOT be happy.
