Error when Appending SQL to ADOQuery

I am Using Delphi 6 Enterprise under Windows 2000, and am using ADO to connect to an ACCESS 2000 Database.

I basically use ADOQueries to connect to the Access Database and generally have NO problems, except, when I use code similar to the following I get the following error: Project XXXXX.exe has raised exception class EAccessViolation with message 'Access violation at address 1B041851 in module 'msjet40.dll'........ etc...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
if qwkTable2.Active then dmMain.qwkTable2.Close;

  qwkTable2.SQL.Clear;
  qwkTable2.SQL.Append('SELECT Sum(mQuoteDetails.TotalCost) AS SumOfTotalCost, Sum(mQuoteDetails.TaxAmount) AS SumOfTaxAmount');
  qwkTable2.SQL.Append('FROM mQuoteDetails');
  qwkTable2.SQL.Append('GROUP BY mQuoteDetails.JobID, mQuoteDetails.QuoteID');
  qwkTable2.SQL.Append('HAVING ((mQuoteDetails.JobID='+IntToStr(iJobID)+') AND (mQuoteDetails.QuoteID='+IntToStr(iQuoteID)+'))');
  qwkTable2.Open;
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Basically the qwkTable2 is a ADOQuery with NO SQL code, which I use as a WORK TABLE, that is SQL can change depending on the function. The error occurs after the first APPEND statement (I have tried OTHER statement types, even simple SELECT statements). I thought that the ADOQuery may be in use, so I added the first line, but still no luck.

If I hard code the above Query into the ADOQuery component it works OK, but when I use the above method I get errors.

Note: I have done this on many occasions with SQL Server, with no problems.


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Use SQL.Add instead of Append

esoftbg,

thanks for the quick response and solution

Question though, why does your code work and not mine ?, yet my code works when using SQL SERVER (I am fairly new to using ACCESS)

I think there is 3 reasons:
1. it must to be a space before: FROM, 'GROUP BY and HAVING
2. it must to be quoted the values of IntToStr(iJobID) and IntToStr(iQuoteID)
3. when I place a breakpoint on the line:     qwkTable2.SQL.Text := T;
applikation stops there an I see the content of T
