TQuery, TDbGrid, SQLServer and Live Result set


I am hooking a table to an SQL Server table, in order to gaurenteee the correct order is displayed I need to link a Query (do an Order By) to the grid as opposed to a TTable. Howevere, i also need a live result set. When I set RequestLife to True and run the query I get an error message saying Invalid fiedl name (it runs fine if RequestLive is False). Any ideas how I might achieve what I need?

Thanks, Tom.

hi tom,

an order by clause causes that the query becomes readonly, you need a TUpdateSQL-Component as UpdateObject for the query to make it editable, but this works only with cachedupdates.

if you leave your email here, then i can send you a sample

Miekl, that worked well. Setting the InsertSQL and other stringlists is a little cumbersome but it works fine. Please answer to grade.
