Aint it always the way! After spending hours playing with this, 5 minutes after sending to the list,

I had the TIB_Connection AliasName property set! Clearing this fixed my problem.

Incidentally, the GSG page on TIB_Connection defines the Database property, which doesn't seem to
exist anymore (does it?).
