I’m trying to connect to Microsoft SQL 8.0 from Delphi 7 using a TADOConnection object.  When I pass a command-line parameter to the application I get this error.

Project boats.exe raised exception class EOleException with message '%1
could not be found'

it seems a syntax error in the parameter passing...

How do you pass this %1 ?

You can also test your parameter from ide choosing Parameters from Run tab and writing the parameter in parameter box....
