Subject Re: [IBO] TwwIBoTable and infopower grids

Hi Rod,

I am doing the same conversion.

So far I've found it easiest to use queries to populate grids, and when
I am using tables, I have avoided "automatic" links using the datasource
on DataChange method. linking a query to another dataset seems to work
pretty well by setting the query's datasource to the "master" table.

I find most of the controls are essentially undocumented, and most of
the existing documentation understandable only AFTER I get the d**n
thing working.

Still all-in-all, I think that I will continue with IBO.
