This seems so basic, why can't I figure it out? PB 9.0, I
have a dw, no retrieval arguments, the retrieval apparently
takes about 30 minutes or more, I haven't waited it out yet.

All I need is
1) how to stop the retrieve from even starting when I
open the dw in the dw painter, or
2) how to cancel the retrieve after I have opened the
datawindow in the dw painter

Thanx in advance.

Hi Todd,

open a datawindow in the painter (choose one which retrieves less data or
has arguments).
Choose "Design" in the main menu, then "Options" and unselect "Retrieve on
Preview".
