TTable doesn't have a "query" property. I believe you're looking at a TWWTable (Woll2Woll), which if I recall correctly ( I stopped using their controls ages ago because of some caching issues) has a either Query or SQL property which allows you to use the Table as a Query as well. In either case, you'll need to check the documentation for the control that you have.



Good luck!!

I cannot attest to the stability of the current versions of Woll2Woll components. I was refering to a time a number odf years ago while working on a very large medical claims processing application which used some TWWQuery components.I found that running even a simple query would go out to the database, pull in every record that met the first criteria of my Where clause, cache that to disk and then proceed to pull off the records that matched the remaining where's. For example:


Select Name,Rank,SerialNum from Personell where name like '%JONES' and Where Rank='PRIVATE'

The above query would go out to the database (which was military database of past and present servicemen... MILLIONS of records) and try to cache to disk all the records that matched NAME like '%JONES' before going on to return the subset of Rank='PRIVATE'. The way we discovered this way that even the simplest of queries would eat up all of the virtual memory  on our NT 4 boxes and ultimately give us the dreaded "Blue Screen Of Death". Yanking the Woll2Woll's from the project fixed that problem. Again, this was at least 3 years ago, and frankly I don't even recall what version it was, so please don't take this to be an indication of the controls now. I stopped using them because of that, that's all.


Good luck!!

Again, I haven't used it in years... coincedently in Delphi 3 as well. I'm not the best person to ask about Woll2Woll nowadays. Sorry.
