TStrings Access Violation

Hi Experts!!
I get an Access Violation when I call the Clear method of my TStrings object:

procedure TFServeis.ExecutaSQL(sentencia: String);
var
 s: TStrings;
begin
 s.Clear;  //Exception!!
 s.Append(sentencia);
 ExecutaSQL(s);
end;

As u c, the code is pretty simple, what I'm doing wrong?
Here are the declarations:

type
 TFServeis = class(TForm)
 private
  { Private declarations }
 public
  { Public declarations }
  function Cerca(Sentencia,Camp: String):Variant;
  procedure ExecutaSQL(sentencia: TStrings); overload;
  procedure ExecutaSQL(sentencia: String); overload;
 end;

This is because you have declared a variable object of type TStrings, but you have not instantiated the object yet. What you need to do is create s first, then use it:

var
   s: TStringList;
begin
   s := TStringList.Create;
   Try
   s.Clear;
   s.Append(sentencia);  
   ExecutaSQL(s);

   Finally
   s.Free;
   End; {Try..Finally}
end;
