The answer is that using table components as the general rule in client/server is NOT a good thing. That said, TIBOTable is just about as optimized as you can get. Jason has some further enhancements to it coming up in IBO 4 (now in beta).

Well, compatibility with the TDatasource-using controls is the common reason for using the TIBO* components. Why do you believe you need a table component for compatibility with the standard grid?

TIBOTable provides 99% emulation of TTable. There is just *no* comparison with TIBTable, which does not emulate TTable and is, as you said, for providing some sort of conversion support. Converson from TTable to TIBOTable is very straightforward - do carefully follow the procedure recommended in the IBO Help file - you won't have to change any code.
