Forced writes is a database setting. Your problem is a client-side
one. It's pretty much off-topic for here, as this isn't a Delphi forum.

But, goodness me, there really isn't a BDE driver that fully supports an
ODS 10 database. The 5.2 version (last-ever) that shipped with Delphi 6
doesn't even cut it. If you are getting similar problems with an IB 5.6
database, it might suggest you are using a really ancient BDE.

Cached updates? Is there a particular reason for this? Have you tried NOT
using them, but using Post and Commit directly?

What you *do* need to do is find what is trapping a million
transactions. That's just about a Guinness candidate.

I can understand that.
