Have checked the table. It definitely has a primary key (of four columns),
and the columns concerned are listed in both Index Fields and KeyKinks

The setkey/gotokey performs exactly as expected and finds the correct record
which is displayed in the DB-aware components. It is only when the update
portion of the navigate bar(BDE) is pressed that the error occurs.

However, there seems to be some problem in the table. Both IBAccess and
IBQuery blow-up when attempting to select * from the whole table. Oddly,
Borland's DBExplorer doesn't blow-up. I have traced the problem to certain
entries in a varchar(80) column - containing the character £ (English
currency sign).

Might this be a cause of problem in my app, and if so, how do you suggest I
deal with it?
