Ann, most newsgroups that I read have posts that say that transactions in
Delphi should be set to (Read Committed, No Wait, Record Version). I am
interested in why you say that Read Committed shouldn't be used. Most
opinions state that having this setting allows you to have an updated view
of data in a multi-user environment so that you are always working with the
latest version of the records in a table. Other than reports or static views
of data, why wouldn't you want it that way?

(Sorry if I missed a previous explanation)
