I have a DB for Windows Database and I
loose records when I turn the power off to my PC, it is crutial that I loose NO records, how can I tell Delphi/BDE that I want the records written to file immediately and to take all cached files and write them to the database, turning the virtual memory off is not an option.

At the moment my code looks similar to this :

 Database1.StartTransaction;
 Table1.Insert;
 Table1.FieldByName('Age').Value := '9';
 Table1.FieldByName('Bld').Value := 'A';
 Table1.Post;
 Database1.Commit;
 Database1.ApplyUpdates([Table1]);

Your help would be greatly apprectiated!

But I think this is suitable if you didn't use Database componet, but meilk's method is suitable for your case.
