Hi all..........
I'm using Delphi3, BDE and Pardox.
When i execute a SQL some temp tables are created in the current folder but they are not deleted after the SQL is done.
Is there any way i can tell the BDE or the Query component in which folder to create the temp tables ???

I mean you may use component TSession and set property PrivateDir

From help:
Use PrivateDir to set the directory in which to store temporary table processing files
for all database connections, such as those generated by the BDE
to handle local SQL statements.
Ordinarily this value is only set at runtime,
so that a user’s local hard disk is used to store temporary files.
Local storage of these files improves performance.
If no value is specified for PrivateDir, the BDE automatically stores
temporary files in the directory current at the time the BDE was initialized.

Should be the same: look at DbiSetPrivateDir function in the BDE API help.

If you want to set the temporary directrory for 'C:\Temp', for example, you make a call like this:

Dir := 'C:\Temp';
Check(DbiSetPrivateDir(PChar(Dir)));

Good luck, bosism@netvision.net.il
