You need to try building this with IB_ components rather than bothering
with the legacy stuff. It was what IBO was designed for. You set up a
master and detail in IB_Query datasets and link them via the relevant
fields. One will track the other nicely, but when attached to IB_Grid
the system will only load those records needed. I wasted 6 months trying
to convert a BDE application to IBO. It took a week to re-write it from
scratch AND gain a lot of functionality that the original simply did not
have - such as incremental search ;)
