IB Objects is actually two series of mutually incompatible components.

There is no TIB_Table component because T..Table is not appropriate for client/server work. If you *must* have all the fields and all the rows of a table (not recommended), set the IB_Query SQL property to SELECT * FROM aTable. You will need a TIB_Datasource to link the IB_Query to a TIB_Grid.

TIBOTable is a TDataset-compatible component. It uses TDatasource and native Delphi and/or native Delphi-compatible controls. The TIB_ components are not compatible with that architecture.
