Don't be too quick to count TIBOTable out of the picture. It has some very
nice functionality built into it that the BDE stopped short of fully
completing. It sounds to me like TIBOTable is just the ticket for what this
person needs. It internally does all the stuff you would normally have to
do yourself manually with TIBOQuery. If you have the proper indexes defined
for ascending and descending order, TIBOTable can be a very nice component
to understand and use appropriately.
