    Our developers want to retrieve simple datasets from our SQL Server database and execute joins in Visual Basic, instead of using SQL (or T-SQL to do the joins on the database.

    What are the pros and cons of this approach?

    The cons are that it is a ridiculous idea - no offense.

    SQL *exists* to manipulate data. Bypassing that to do it in VB is simply ludicrous. They should keep their resumes up-to-date.

    But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong
