No, you should not use stringlists like that. Unless it is just one row at a
time that is.

The most important difference between a buffered dataset and the TIB_DSQL
component is that you are not buffering up the records as you send them to
the server. Therefore you are using much less memory. To buffer inserts as
they are happening is unwise in most all cases.
