I was making a revision and repeating test programs and I verified that the difference is not in 1.x compatibility.

The difference seems to be in the use of two similar tables, of different versions: Fox 2.6 y VFP.

Examples: 

VFP table (Numeric Field)
test.dbf (281.424 records)

Time 1: 11:45:20
SQL Query: select nombre from test where id_test=200029 order by nombre into cursor list1
Time 2: 11:45:20

Records: 1

Fox 2.6 table (Numeric Field)
test_26.dbf (281.424 records)

Time 1: 11:47:29
SQL Query: select nombre from test_26 where id_test=200029 order by nombre into cursor list1
Time 2: 11:47:29

Records: 1
VFP table (Character Field)
test.dbf (281.424 records)

Time 1: 11:49:32
SQL Query: select nombre from test where nombre="PAULA" order by nombre into cursor list2
Time 2: 11:49:32

Records: 24
Fox2.6 table (Character Field)
test.dbf (281.424 records)

Time 1: 11:50:31
SQL Query: select nombre from test_26 where nombre="PAULA" order by nombre into cursor list2
Time 2: 11:50:55

Records: 24

The quest is slower using Fox2.6 2,6 table  with field of characters. Any idea of the reason?

Thank you very much.

I can't find a reason why this setting would cause any difference in query performance.  Enabling 1.x compatibility adds a few extra steps at the beginning of each request, all related to populating the various properties of the CGI object.  Could it be that this is a coincidence and that the performance improvement had to do with a re-start of FoxWeb, reboot, or other factor?  I would really appreciate it if you re-enabled the setting a ran an additional test.
