Hi again experts!

I want to make a function which executes an SQL sentence on any existing TQuery component. I'm attempting to pass a pointer to the TQuery object as a parameter, but the compiler gives me an error at the function prototype:
"Identifier expected but '^' found".
Here is the code:

type
 TServeis = class(TObject)
 private
  { Private declarations }
  prova: ^TQuery; //this line compiles correctly
 public
  function BDEToStringList(Sentencia,Camp: String;var Llista: TStringList): Boolean;
  function Cerca(Sentencia,Camp: String):Variant;
  function ManipulaQ(Sentencia: TStrings;PQ: ^Integer):Integer; //error
  function ConsultaQ(Sentencia: TStrings;PQ: ^TQuery):Integer; //error
 end;

Any ideas are welcome! Thank you!

as every tobject is a pointer to itself,
you don't need the ^-sign

type
TServeis = class(TObject)
private
 { Private declarations }
 prova: TQuery; //this line compiles correctly
public
 function BDEToStringList(Sentencia,Camp: String;var Llista: TStringList): Boolean;
 function Cerca(Sentencia,Camp: String):Variant;
 function ManipulaQ(Sentencia: TStrings;PQ: ^Integer):Integer; //don't know for what this may be
 function ConsultaQ(Sentencia: TStrings;PQ:  TQuery):Integer; //error
end;
