The one from the DBE help file? :

Add multiple records to a table

This example assumes that the Customer TTable object is the Customer.DB table. It uses the following input:      fDbiWriteBlock(Table1; NumRecs);

procedure fDbiWriteBlock(Customer: TTable; var RecordsToInsert: Longint);
var
  pRecordsBuf, pTmpBuf: pBYTE;
  Rec: longint;
  CustNo: double;

begin
  Randomize;
  GetMem(pRecordsBuf, Customer.RecordSize * RecordsToInsert);
  pTmpBuf := pRecordsBuf;
  try
    for Rec := 1 to RecordsToInsert do
    begin
      CustNo := Random(1000000);
      // Iterate through the entire record buffer filling each individual record with information
      with Customer do
      begin

        Check(DbiInitRecord(Handle, pTmpBuf));
        Check(DbiPutField(Handle, FieldByName('CustNo').Index + 1, pTmpBuf,
                pBYTE(@CustNo)));
        Check(DbiPutField(Handle, FieldByName('Company').Index + 1, pTmpBuf,
                PChar('Borland International')));
        Inc(pTmpBuf, RecordSize);
      end;
    end;
    Check(DbiWriteBLock(Customer.Handle, RecordsToInsert, pRecordsBuf));
  finally
    FreeMem(pRecordsBuf, Customer.RecordSize * RecordsToInsert);

  end;
end;

How do I use DbiAppendRecord instead of DbiPutField?

?
DBiWriteBlock writes several records to a table.
DbiAppendRecord writes one reocrd to a table.

Both have to be filled with DbiPutField. (See also BDE help)
