I have two tables linked by fields 'id' and 'doc_id' which produces the correct search results but when I sort detail table, relationship go broken.

How I may sort detail dataset without TQuery component?
(TQuery very slowly on Local DB)

You can do it be using an index for the detail table. Suppose your detail table has four fields: DOC_ID, DATE, TITLE and TEXT ( this is just an example) and that it is linked to field ID in the master table. To show the detail records sorted by DATE, you create an index for the detail table over the fields (DOC_ID, DATE) in that order. Depending on the database you are using, you should then set either the IndexFieldNames property of you detail TTable object to DOC_ID, DATE or the IndexFile property to the name of your index.
You can sort the detail table by TITLE by creating a (DOC_ID, TITLE) index etc. You can swicth from one sort to the other by changing the IndexFieldNames property at run-time. If you do this, you may need to do a Refresh on either the master or the detail table.

I hope this will help you.
