Well, yes I do...but that wasn't my message this time around. I'd failed
to notice that you had referred to TIBOTable, not TIBOQuery. However, the
same applies, re keeping everything within the TIBO* stream.

TIBOTable exists in the TDataset-compatible stream of components really
just for compatibility with existing BDE apps that people are
converting. In the process of converting say a Paradox app to Firebird or
InterBase one would get rid of table components PDQ. For an understanding
of why, pick up the TI sheet on Moving to Client/Server, from the TechInfo
