Deleting from a query

In porting a d1 project to d3 I have found problems with code that deletes from a query. No I get a table is read only message. The query does not return a live result set even if requestlive is set to True as Order By is used. Anyway, I don't want a live result set I simply want to be ablt to delete some records from the query that I couldn't do with SQL. How can I set the query up so this is possible? Thanks, Tom.

First of all, if you wan't to operate on the query data directly you will have to get a live set from the query.

You can also choose to update your table in a TTable, and get a unique identifier from your query for the TTable.

Lets say, you construct a huge query which would never be able to return a live set, no matter what you do. If your query at the same time request some unique row ID's, you can use these ID's in a TTable to delete/modify these rows.

Supply the query statement if you can't live without a live result set ;-) I'll see then if I can point out any non live-set aspects in it.

You could use a TUpdateSql to achieve what you want.
Look at it's help its explained right easily.
I've never used it but I know it should be done with that.
I hope it helps.

Hi,

I do not use a TUpDateSql as like I said I do not wish to update the TTable. KE, I did not understand what you were saying. I need to work with the modified query but not write the changes to the database.

Thanks, Tom.

Hi,
Pleas supply the SQL Statment.
(By the way you don't use Query.Open, do you?)

Set Query1.CachedUpdates = True and
write such OnUpdateRecord handler

procedure TForm1.Query1UpdateRecord(DataSet: TDataSet;
  UpdateKind: TUpdateKind; var UpdateAction: TUpdateAction);
begin
  UpdateAction := uaApplied;
end;

Now you can modify your dataset as you want and
changes will not writes to the database.
