Are you using ODBC?  I use a BDE replacement component set for ODBC to MSSQL.  First, a cursor is how you get your data.  In the BDE you may not realize that cursors are ALWAYS being used when you access any dataset.

What happens there is that when I open the dataset, the cursor is not on any record.  I need to say something like:

while mydataset.FetchRecord do
    ...

I can't right away get data out without asking for FetchRecord first otherwise I'll get an error similar to what you have described.

I know of an article where you can learn more about this if you're interested.
