"at end of table" error with BDE/Access

Hi guys.
I'm writing an app that connects to Access via BDE. This is access 97, I'm using Delphi 5, and the computer is windows 2000 using office XP (Maybe that's where the problem is). I couldn't convert the DB to access XP or access 2000 because then the BDE won't connect to it (maybe there are new drivers or something?).

Anyway, I have a master-detail tables (2 tables). When I add a record to the master table, it works fine. If I add a record to the detail table, I get a 'At end of table' error after the POST command. I checked a 1000 times that all values in all fields in the table is correct (including the primary-key, I simply use a field called 'number' to diffrentiate).

What am I doing wrong???

First of all, if you are using Access I would strongly reccomend you to go with ADO instead of BDE.  BDE Requires you to install the BDE on the client machine, where ADO is already installed with Windows 2000, Windows XP and is even installed with Office.

I think it will be much easier to access you Aceess DB using ADO than it is with BDE.

Hi Ron,

As far as I know BDE can't work with Access2000 and later. You have to use alternatives if you want to migrate to newer Access version (like ADO components).

About the error:
Where does the error occur? On executing POST command or after?
What do you have after POST?
Have you tried your app outside IDE?

Is moving to ADO easy? I have delphi enterprise so it should be included, right? I'll give it a try.

I haven't tried the app outside IDE. And after POST I do nothing (but get the error)...

Maybe it is the Access 2000 - Nothing like that ever happened in Access 97! progress is not so good a thing ;-)
