I clearly see your point but I consider that a problem with the BDE code. I
prefer to have bad code dealt with than to candy coat over it.

Does anyone else feel as Hans that the change to ignore dsInactive state in
the dataset when assigning a field value is fine? Obviously, I was not aware
the BDE would allow this. Perhaps a look in the VCL again would make Hans
case better...
