It is important for us developing for web applications and mobile apps to take into account delegation of operation between the server side that can use these approaches and eventual delegation of list-based operations to the individual mobile client itself. It might be a very good idea to take the performance loss by less optimal code if it can be performed at the mobile client - keeping down the workload of the server.

Take care, all the best…

I actually found that "For each line in list" with a "Set current list" was the fastest option when looping. It is ugly to look at, from my perspective now, but I do use this old structure when I must eek out the last bit of performance from Omnis Studio.
