That's good to know.

No, the BDE is not required at all in IBO applications.

TIB_Datasource is not designed for the TIBO* components - they work with
Delphi's TDatasource.

Use only the TIBO* components with third-party components that need

Use only the TIB_ components with the TIB_ controls.

You cannot mix TIB_ and TIBO_ components.
