Hi Alan

Its not a commit or transaction issue as I am using IBO (as opposed to IB_) components to speed conversion (it is a very large app). Just now I was in the invoice screen, opened the client management screen and added a new client, went back to the invoice screen and selected the client from a combo. This works great, however if I do the same with item price (and likely other areas), when I add the item to the invoice it does not show. Perhaps the Combos are doing a refresh before they locate?

I don't suppose you mean close and reopen the screen where the edits have
been done?
If so then maybe you don't know about commit? - maybe you are only commit
retaining? your edits?
am I on the right track?

IB Objects - direct, complete, custom connectivity to Firebird or InterBase
without the need for BDE, ODBC or any other layer.
