I want to know how to refresh a single record on a query already prepared and executed. When executing the query.refresh I get the error : "Index not unique"
The database I am working with is MS SQL Server.

Monroe,

  You can't really refresh just a single record unless the query only returns that one record. The Index Not Unique error is coming up because Delphi needs a unique index on the tables it accesses in order to be able to tell which one it was updating.

Go to the table and prepare a unique index and let your app know what it is. Should solve the problem.

Good luck on your project!

Perhaps I have forgotten something but On the MS SQL Server Entreprise Manager, I have set my tables with a unique index and on Delphi I have tried a simple program with a query, a DBNavigator and a DBGrid connected with a datasource. The result on pressing the refresh button of the DBNavigator was this error "Cannot refresh this table because there is no unique index". Am I obliged to put only a Table component to use this refresh utility. Why is it so accessible for queries? Or what must I do to do it works? You say : Let your app know what it is => I don't know how...
