The point I was making was, if your create statements used quoted
identifiers, then all the identifiers are case-sensitive and, in some
cases, will need to be quoted in the SQL, e.g.

if you did
CREATE TABLE "StaffCategory" (...

then select * from staffcategory won't find the table.

I can't determine whether you are asking or stating...

Select * gets all the columns. It's preferable (recommended but not
essential) to specify a column list.

Do you realise that you have to set the Connected property of the
IB_Connection to true AT RUN-TIME? and also prepare and open the datasets,
when you want them open?
