I use a TQuery component for SQL commands. I execute a SQL
command using, for exemple, the sequence:
      Query1.Close;
      Query1.SQL.Clear;
      Query1.SQL.Add ('select * from file where Code>= 20');
      Query1.Open;
I want to use Query1.Params property to parametrize the value "20".
How to do that? I need un example.

What kind of database did you want to use, is it desktop or Client/Server?

Hi Val84,

Something like this perhaps...

Query1.Close;
Query1.SQL.Clear;
Query1.SQL.Add ('select * from file where Code>= :Code');
Query1.ParamByName('Code').AsInteger:= 20;
Query1.Open;

Regards
Aubs

You'll still have to add the parameter though, don't forget to specify a type for the parameter (Integer in your case) when using the Object Inspector. From you code:

Query1.Params.CreateParam (ftInteger, 'Code', ptInput);

You only have to create it once.

Good luck,

JAAP
