Subject Firebird Generated Keys as Master / Slave Links and IBO Controls
Author George
We have converted an old BDE App to Firebird using IBO components.

We now want to optimise the app to get the benefit of the combined
Firebird / IBO functionality.

Our problem concerns generators - specifically, having gone to
primary keys having no logic in the real world but being generated by
a Firebird Generator, we now have linking problems.

From what we understand, for a field to be populated by a generator
it must be left out of the IBO query SQL statement. If this is so
then the query doesn't have it and cannot use it as a linking field
in a master/slave relationship.

Can anyone point us to a document that will enlighten us on Master /
Slave relationships using generator populated fields as the key?

The samples are in Delphi and we are using C++ so can't access them.

Many thanks
