TQuery Passed as parameter? OK?

Using Delphi 1.0 and DBase tables...
I am trying to pass a query 7 times to fill a string grid, and it
returns the same, wrong, data each time.

This is the call I am making.

   with frmWeek do    {Fill in column headers with day of week/date}
      for i := 0 to 6 do
         sgWeek.Cells[ i,0 ] := dayOfWeek[ i ] + ' ' +
         JulianDayToGregorianString( (weekstart + i)) ;

   sgcol := 1; {First Usable Column}
   while not (weekstart > weekend) do begin
      CalendarSetRange(weekstart, qWeek);  {This is the painful call}
      qWeek.First;
      dsi := 1;
      while not ( dsi > qWeek.RecordCount )do begin  {While not EOF}
         for sgi := 0 to qWeek.FieldCount - 1 do begin
            with sgWeek do
                 Cells[sgi,dsi] := 'B  ' + qWeek.fields[0].AsString +
                                                '    E ' + qWeek.fields[1].AsString + '  ' +
                                                qWeek.fields[4].AsString;
         qWeek.next;
         end; {for}
         dsi := dsi + 1;
      end; {while}
      sgcol := sgcol + 1;
      weekstart := weekstart + 1.0;
      Update;
   end; {while}
end;{Dates}

-----------------------------
Separate Unit that the query is passed to:
--------------------

procedure CalendarSetRange( start : Double; dayquery : TQuery) ;
{Run query to display assets used during the 24 hour period }
var
    dateToShow : Double;

begin
   dateToShow := start;
   dayquery.Close;
   dayquery.ParamByname('EndTime').AsFloat := int( dateToShow );
   dayquery.ParamByname('StartTime').AsFloat := int( dateToShow + 1.0
);
   dayquery.Prepare;
   dayquery.Close;
   dayquery.Open;
end;

You must include the DBTABLES in your uses line of your separate unit. I don't know if this is what you mean but otherwise I get no error if I pass a Tquery as parameter.

I hope this helps.
