Large Database Call Psudo-code Help - El Forum - 02-11-2011

Hello Guys,

I need some help on how to go about solving this problem. I have a large database with around 17,000+ results, and I need to display a good portion of those on one single page as part of a form.

How would you load this information, step by step? My current thought process is this,

- Allow the user to select a sub-set of this info (< 5,000 rows)
- Load the subset via ajax
- Display the subset within hidden div's, Allowing the list to be browsed alphabetically.

Could anyone else think of a possibly better way of displaying such a large amount of information as part of a web form?
