That works, but defeats my goal of updating only changed columns (or
no update if nothing changed).

Also why don't the update statements that IBO generates work? I traced
the code to the point where IBO calls the API, and the query seems to
be ok, something like:

UPDATE table SET col=? WHERE CURRENT OF cursor_id

I also tried with SearchedEdits=TRUE and KeyLinksAutoDefine=TRUE, so
the resulting update statement uses the "normal" method of updating a
row based on the ID column. The query passed to the API looks like:

UPDATE table SET col=? WHERE table.ID=?

This looks ok, and doesn't trigger any exception, but it also doesn't

Although I'm not really familiar with the API level, I may have
figured out what is wrong. It seems that the parameter block for the
search column (in this case ASQLDA.SQLVAR[1]) - always contains a zero
value for the column. If this is indeed the case then the search fails
and so the update never happens.

Unfortunately, I can't get non-prepared-edits mode to work. There's a
problem in case of a cursor update, and another problem in case of a
searched update.

Is there any way to get this working? I really like the idea of IBO
taking care to update the required columns, or not update at all, as
