I have a parameterized query that looks something like this
"Insert into Table ('ID','Key','Desc') values (:id,:key,:desc);"

//desc is some times null
ID and Key is integer
Desc is String
eg.
IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').asString := 'Value';
or
IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').asString := null;

//the folowing does not work
IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').bound := False;
IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').Clear;
IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').bound := True;

   Bound is automatically set when you assign value for the parameter. Set Bound to False to undo the setting of a value.

   Your code is wrong.

   IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').asString := 'Value';
   IBQuery.ParamByName('Desc').bound := False;

   now the parameter is cleared... You can not set bound = True without assigning value.

   In my opinion is is logical error of Borland - this have to be read-only property ... Anyway - the problem is in your code.

recherched a bit and it points out that the TIBQuery is just
a compatibility component with a view bugs
(maybe also the NULL-assignment)

if possible replace TIBQuery with the TIBSQL-component

IBQuery.ParamByName(ParmString).Value := null
did work, Our Company’s Derived IBKylixQuery Class has a bug
