I'd like to code SQL statement and process it by Database Server but now I must code it in Delphi SQL statement or SQL-92. Am I right?

I don't get your question currently. If I understand you right you want to know whether and how you have to use SQL statements in Delphi. Is this correct? if not, please clarify your question a bit.

You can set the properties of an alias to SHARED AUTOCOMMIT (which I believe is the default). Then you can code any SQL statement your DB understands. (The passthrough SQL will be automatically commited).

You can setup your Database component so that the BDE doesn't parse your SQL statements.

Delphi SQL is very useful very say Paradox databases which don't support SQL. You can use the SQL of your server (which could be SQL-92).

Be careful though. The BDE decides wether a statement is passthrough or not, and sometimes a complex SQL statement get interpreted wrong by the BDE. What you can do is setup a special DataBase component for passthrough and one for normal SQL.

(Do you use IntrBase? I have a lot of examples for that one!)

I do not understand how to set that Jacco told me. And I set like this  pls tell me what's wrong.

I set 2 BDE aliases to the same instance(database) of ORACLE  
    Properties of 2 BDE
aliasname               PIS                    THRUPIS  
SQL passthroughmode     Shared autocommit      Not Shared

and I have 2 database components
    Properties of 2 database components
databasename            dbPIS                  dbTHRUPIS
alias                   PIS                    THRUPIS

and I have 2 TQuery
    Properties of 2 Tquery components
database                dbPIS                  dbTHRUPIS
SQL             SQL statement in SQL-92 format
                                   SQL statement in ORACLE format

But the second query failed. How to write the SQL statement in ORACLE format and process it by ORACLE not by BDE?

How does the second query fail ?
I suppose that you have to use explicit transaction control
with DataBase.StartTransAction and DataBase.Commit.
