View vs Filtered Data Page

Question

I have a table of transactions that requires a user to enter a category from a dropdown list.  I have created a view of all transactions missing a category and use it in my Data Page that users load a category.

Which is a better way to do this -a view or a filter in the data page?  Does it matter?

 

Thanks

I believe it does matter. I don't have time to dig up the post, but there is one regarding this issue somewhere on these forums. If I remember it correctly, the loading times for filtering via datapage were much faster than the loading times with views. 

I believe when you create a view, you are creating another table. When using your datapages, you query to the view, which then gets the values from the actual table, and then sends the information. When using datapage filtering, you are going straight to the source.
