Using InterBase Client/Server 5.5, two client PCs run the same Windows NT app using BDE 5.11. On one PC all data can be seen in a given table, but on the other PC only records up a certain date come back.

I would be grateful for all help offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

At the moment we have no plans to move to Interbase 6.  So as you can imagine we would very much like to have a solution that works with InterBase Client/Server 5.5.

I would be grateful for all help offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

Are both BDE configs the same?. Try copying the Idapi.cfg of the computer that is working fine into the computer that fails.

It might be a limit in the MAXROWS of the BDE for the failing computer. Be sure that the value is -1.

I haven't heard on such problem in IB 5.5, so I presume it must be application specific. Can you describe what the app does (and should do)? What do you use: TQuery, TTable... etc.

FWIW,
