Using Cached Updates

Posted on 1997-07-23

I have a lot of Inserts to do in a Sybase table.  I want to use cached updates to lower network traffic.  I use a Tquery with the query Insert into TAble1 (Field1,field2,...) VAlues ("value1","value2",..).  I change TQuery.SQL for each insert and use Tquery.ExecSQL.  After a hundred inserts I do TDatebase.ApplyUpdates and I receive the error : Tquery isn't a TDatabase dataset.  Is there a way to do this task?

Add the DBiProcs unit to your uses clause and
put DBiSaveChanges(TableName.Handle) in your code to flush all cached changes.
Another option is adding DBiUseIdleTime to your app in the OnIdle event.

I don't think your methods are of some use for cached updates. If they do, I would need more information on that unit because there isn't info in Delphi manuals.

These procs work for me... I used to lose a record now and then after posting it. These functions did the trick for me.
The problem is that there is very little doc's about these procs available, but this is what I have on the DBiSaveChanges proc:

Unit:    DbiProcs

Section: Data Access: Logical Record Level

Description:   Flush all buffered changes

Parameters:    hCursor : hDBICur   Cursor handle

When do I use these procs. After ApplyUpdates? Do I keep the Tquery and Tdatabase?  Can You show me somw code?

I guess you should use it near the TDatabase.ApplyUpdates you mentioned in your question.
I use something like this on Paradox tables:

  with Table1 do
    begin
       Table1.Edit;
       Table1FirstField.AsString := 'ABCDE';
       Table1SecondField.AsInteger := 123;
       Table1.Post;
       DBiSaveChanges(Table1.Handle);
    end;

I specified in my question that I was working with a Sybase Server. I have to add records to the table with an SQL Insert query so I won't lock the table.  Also there is a autoincrement field in the table. I can specify a value for all the fields except this one. If I use your method, I will receive the error:Field[0] has no specified value. Also I find your method quite confusing since you don't use any of the cached updates' methods like ApplyUpdates, commit, etc.

What happens when you call the TQuery.ApplyUpdates instead of the TDatabase.ApplyUpdates?
Sample:

  Database1.StartTransaction;
  try
    Query1.ApplyUpdates;
    Database1.Commit;
  except
    Database1.Rollback;
    raise;
  end;
  Query1.CommitUpdates;
