Subject IBO4 - OrderingLinks and POS
Hello Jason,

My email has been down but I looked into the ReleaseNotes
and it mentions using the POS attribute. I put it in the
OrderingLinks and the program seems to need more to do
something. I looked at the SearchingLinks Demo, and I
think I picked up enough to get it to work for now.
But the fact that I have to do:

SQLWhereItems.Add( 'OM_Company STARTING WITH :Company' );

in the PrepareSQL makes me wonder if I am doing this
right. Could you give some more explantion of how
it should all work together. Maybe it needs a artical
in the GSG or something, but I don't understand how
the v4 is better than the v3. In v3 I could

seSearchingLinks.ParamRefinePos := 2;

Which seems to do the same as the POS attribute.
Please clarify?
