Did you know that ALL retrievals from a Firebird database are SELECTs? This isn't Paradox, you know! Even if you use a TTable in Delphi, underneath it is doing a SELECT * FROM some table, view or SP. But you should throw away TTable - it was designed for use with Paradox.

That's *another* option. But a view would be more efficient than a selectable SP for this case for several reasons, including that the underlying indexes, if useful, are available.
