I really need help !!

I am using DELPHI 2.0 with local database (PARADOX)
Let suppose my form has two buttons like "NEW" and the code is "table1.insert" and "SAVE" .."table1.post"
and I entered 50 records through "SAVE" buttons but my form is remain open okey..and accidently my PC turn off..
but the interesting thing is after turning on when I go there to check the records there is nothing..I mean I got nothing there which I entered earlier the 50 records of mine..but when I close the form or issue "table1.close" statement normally it saves permanently ..
Do you think I am doing this in a wrong way or is there another way to write data permanently ..?
OR with local database permanent data writing is not available ...I shall highly appreciate your help ...

Try this procedure:

procedure TdmdStrategyYear.WriteItNow(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
     DbiSaveChanges(TTable(DataSet).Handle);
end;

Make the procedure run from the AFTERPOST event of the TTable object.  Additionally, you might want to do it after insert, edit, and delete also.  I've had problems especially with BatchMove and the table calling the function.  For more info, check the BDE API Help file that comes with Delphi.  

Also, see the discussion concerning this--its currently one of the last questions in the "Awaiting answer" section:

Hope that helps,
