Subject Using Firebird with SyBase PowerBuilder 8
Author Emerson Muniz

Sorry, my English is not very well, but you can correct me any time :-)

I use the PowerBuilder 8, and now I want use the Firebird SQL, but I find out, here in Brazil this:

"The PB sends the SQL solicitation, either of DataWindow (DW) or SQL in script of the PB, in uppercase, except for the values of arguments repassed for retrieve or that they meet between ` (apostrophes) indicated as values of field. To prevent any inconveniences, is suggested to create the data bank using uppercase, for all the elements of the bank: tables, fields, constraints, etc. The use of datatype NUMERIC or DECIMAL complicates in some reactions in scripts of the PB, resulting in missed calculations, incorrect and worse taking of values that this: To decide these problems found in the use of this datatypes could be supplied using type FLOAT."

Anybody here use the PB with Firebird and can give me a help? I need use the Firebird and I cant make mistakes :-)

Thanks. . .
