  I just installed delphi 6 Enterprise edition today
 
  and I'm testing dbexpress with oracle database, I added SQLConnection and SQLTable to connec to the database, and I added Dbgrid, and when I try to connect the dbgrid with datasource property it gave me this error "operation not allowed in unidirectional dataset"

  so what can I do for that?

Best regards

I think you will have to use a TDataSet component capable of buffering returned data into memory if you want to use the DBGrid. Use DataSetProvider and ClientDataSet to accomplish this.
The DBExpress components do not buffer returned data into memory; they only return unidirectional cursors to the data.

I think that anytime you start using resources your going to slow the system down.

hi,
i dont know which is fastest(dont have)so my comment dont mean much ,though in my opinion they should both be fast because of the no buffering in memory,therefore also using less resources,if your upgrading an app my guess is it will be faster overall using any of the dbexpress comps.

er listening ..
