 2.0 Database HELP! Wisdom Needed

You probably already checked this, but... Do you have AutoCommit
turned on in your BDE connection?


TINSAAFL: There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch
  (variation on motto of the moon colony from Robert A. Heinlein)

Pessimist by policy, optimist by temperament - it is possible to be both.
How? By never taking an unnecessary chance and by minimizing risks you
can't avoid. This permits you to play out the game happily, untroubled
by the certainty of the outcome.
