Thanks. It worked out fine when I set the RequestLiveDataset property
and the Edit/Insert/Delete SQL statements.

this case I'm bemused by why the insert button is not greyed out..)
or to set explicit statements in EditSQL, InsertSQL and DeleteSQL

are either wrong (don't correspond to the primary key of the
underlying table) or they are missing. Otherwise, there is no way to
determine which row is to be updated or deleted - and the update bar
reflects this. (It can insert OK without Keylinks but you will
probably have trouble finding the inserted records after a refresh...)
