With the following code I am trying to change all records of Show field into False that matchs with to the following condition.

clientID :=5; contractNo := 10;

QuerySort.Active := False;
QuerySort.SQL.Text := 'UPDATE DEBTS SET Show=' + '''' + '''False''' + ''''
                              + ' WHERE (ClientID= IntToStr(clientID))and(ContractNo=contractNo)';
QuerySort.ExecSQL;

const SQL = 'UPDATE DEBTS SET Show=False WHERE (ClientID= :ClientID) and (ContractNo=:contractNo)';
begin
  querysort.Active := False;
  querysort.sql.text := SQL;
  querysort.parambyname('ClientID').AsInteger := ClientID;
  querysort.parambyname('contractNo').AsInteger := contractNo;
  querysort.ExecSQL;
end;

do you try to open the query?
if so, then you must replace the statement with your
previous select-statement before opening

No I am just executing it

const SQL = 'UPDATE DEBTS SET Show=False WHERE (ClientID= :ClientID) and (ContractNo=:contractNo)';

querysort.Active := False;
querysort.sql.text := SQL;
querysort.parambyname('ClientID').AsInteger := ClientID;
querysort.parambyname('contractNo').AsInteger := contractNo;
querysort.ExecSQL;

That's all what I am doing.

Long long ago when Delphi 2 was a yanger 'No current record' make mad many programmers who update records with a values that sends visual controls current record out of filter applayed by query or other datasets. So reopening of query AFTER update produces 'No current record'.
Is I'm right?

MikProg means,
there may dataaware-controls attached via a TDatasource to the query,
which causes this problem
-> deAttach the Dataset from the Datasource before
-> DataSource1.Dataset := nil;

Hmm! I'm mistaken.
>>NO reopening of query AFTER update produces 'No current record'.
  ^^^^
Events follows as
1. Update query do job.
2. AutoRefresh poperty or other occurances (VCL & programmed by author) couses Query to refresh buffer for carrent record after update.
3. Internal method of Query object retrieves SINGLE record by finding her as directs UpdateMode property of Query object (I think you leave default value 'UpWhereAll' )
4. If record retrieved - values of visual controls will be refreshed (may be it is icorrect word in English, not in Delphi). If record missed - we have message ... right 'No current record'.

So
We need
or to disable autorefresh
or handle exception by reopening query (I prefer this)
or disable events cousing current record refresh (they are lot of them if you like hard work)

I have found that two components simultaniously using the same dataset(TTable and TQuery). Before calling update method I closed Table. After execution of update I am calling Open method of table again. Now everything works. :)
