Hi All
I'm trying to set the "NET DIR" property in the paradox driver of the BDE by using the "DbiGetNextRecord" and "DbiModifyRecord" functions (i can give the code if you need it} and though i'm getting OK results from both function i end up with trush in the "NET DIR" field.
If anyone have a source they can show me this will realy help.

To change the NET DIR to c:\temp write:

SetConfigParameter('\DRIVERS\PARADOX\INIT\;NET DIR','c:\temp');

procedure SetConfigParameter(Param: string; Value: string);
var
  hCur: hDBICur;
  rslt: DBIResult;
  Config: CFGDesc;
  Path, Option: string;
  Found: boolean;
  Temp: array[0..255] of char;
begin
  hCur := nil;
  Found := False;
  try
        Check(dbiInit(Nil));
    if Pos(';', Param) = 0 then
      raise EDatabaseError.Create('Invalid parameter passed to function.  There must ' +
        'be a semi-colon delimited sting passed');
    Path := Copy(Param, 0, Pos(';', Param) - 1);
    Option := Copy(Param, Pos(';', Param) + 1, Length(Param) - Pos(';', Param));
    Check(DbiOpenCfgInfoList(nil, dbiREADWRITE, cfgPERSISTENT, StrPCopy(Temp, Path), hCur));
    repeat
      rslt := DbiGetNextRecord(hCur, dbiNOLOCK, @Config, nil);
      if rslt = DBIERR_NONE then
      begin
        if StrPas(Config.szNodeName) = Option then
        begin
          StrPCopy(Config.szValue, Value);
          Check(DbiModifyRecord(hCur, @Config, FALSE));
          Found := True;
          break;
        end;
      end
      else
      if rslt <> DBIERR_EOF then Check(rslt);
    until rslt <> DBIERR_NONE;
    if Found = False then
      raise EDatabaseError.Create(Param + ' entry was not found in configuration file');
  finally
    if hCur <> nil then Check(DbiCloseCursor(hCur));
    DbiExit;
  end;
end;
