I don't have the code itself. I never completed the bid. I was asking for
test programs before choosing somebody to write the full component. The
test programs were required to be made in C and written to directly access
the API. I assume this was done since the test programs had to run in the
same directory as the interbase client dlls.

If they are using the TIBSQL component to execute their INSERT
statements, then it would be practically the same as accessing the API

Is it possible to view the code? If you want, you could send it to me
privately, but please send the code in text format since I don't have
VB. Also, which ADO/OLE DB driver did you use before? Have you tried
others? i.e. ZStyle Group OLE DB Firebrid driver
( ).

Why RC5 and not the official version?
