Subject Re: [ib-support] Aborting an Query
Author Svein Erling Tysvaer
Well, it may be impossible to abort the query while the server is
generating the result, but it is at least possible to abort fetching all
records to the client. I haven't checked how it is done, but IB_SQL
(developed by IBObjects) gets an Abort button after fetching the first few
records if this fetching takes some time.
