Hey, nice to hear from you!

I thought I had the TIBOUpdateSQL working accurately upon swapping class
names. Is it possible you could distill down a sample BDE form that doesn't
work upon conversion to IBO? I'd like to just make sure this works. I'll
review my own test cases as well.

If you plan on simply staying with IBO and have no prospect of going back to
the BDE then you will want to go ahead and move them and delete the
IBOUpdateSQL components. Otherwise, if you need to talk to something other
than IB you would want to stay compatible with the BDE as much as you can by
leaving them.

Look at the SQLEditor property in the object inspector. I tried adding it to
the right click but couldn't figure out how.

Yes, if you would, please touch up the code there as you did before. I don't
have a database kicking around with QUAD's to test with.

Send my regards!
