Memory usage - Extract vs Select

Hello,

Does anyone know what is the most memory efficient way to manipulate
large data sets (200,000 rows and 40 columns) ? I use extract, but
suspect Select may be more efficient.

Also, is there a way to tell how much memory is being used by a
mathematica command ?

Thanks,
Tom
