I don't know how well you did your port between different databases, but
certainly the BDE has too generic support for anything and it's a dead end.
Before charging the db engine for the problems, worry about that IDAPI
technology that connects to Paradox and Dbase and that pretends to treat C/S
databases same as local databases, I mean the BDE.
