This doesn't work for me, and I'm also using TIBOQuery. If I omit
the EditSQL(UPDATE statement) and set PreparedEdits to False, the
dataset is marked as not updatable, even if there's no aggregate
fields and only one table is in the query. And, if I put a statement
in EditSQL and set PreparedEdits to False, then the full UPDATE
statement as defined in EditSQL is used. I haven't checked with
TIB_Query to see if it handles this better, which I probably would
expect it to.
