Hi,
I am a VB programmer and just shifted to Delphi programming..I have Delphi 7 Enterprise edition in office and I want to develop an application by using ADO in it.

So can u please tell me what are the steps to use ADO and pass statements like INSERT, UPDATE AND DELETE to save, update and delete records from SQL SERVER database.

What components i need to drop on the form to achieve this goal and how to write sql statements?


Thanks.

Some examples cut from my application. Not complete.Access database.

//---------------------------------------------
  ADOConnection1.Connected := False;
  str := 'Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;';
  str := str + 'Data Source='+
      IncludeTrailingPathDelimiter(ExtractFilePath( ParamStr(0) ))+'spectro3.mdb;';
  str := str + 'Persist Security Info=False';
  try
    ADOConnection1.ConnectionString := str;
    ADOConnection1.Connected := True;
//---------------------------------------------
....
//---------------------------------------------
      ADOConnection1.BeginTrans;
      try
        ADOCommand1.CommandText :=
          Format('DELETE FROM Hints WHERE (hin_subst_id=%d) AND (hin_no=%d)',
                                                        [sid,lp]);
        ADOCommand1.Execute;
        ADOCommand1.CommandText :=
          Format('UPDATE Hints SET hin_no = hin_no-1 WHERE (hin_subst_id=%d) AND (hin_no >%d)',
                                                        [sid,lp]);
        ADOCommand1.Execute;
        ADOConnection1.CommitTrans;
      except
        ADOConnection1.RollbackTrans;
        end;


//---------------------------------------------
....
//---------------------------------------------
          ADOCommand1.CommandText := Format('INSERT INTO Prof_lang (pla_profile_id,pla_lang_id) VALUES (%d,%d)',
              [pid,
              atLang.FieldByName('lang_id').AsInteger]);
          ADOCommand1.Execute;

use ADOConnection for the connection. it has a propery ConnectionString (you can build the connectionstring on design-time by clicking on the button next to the property)
use ADOCommand to execute commands. (set it's Connection property to ADOConnection)

and check delphi help for each component.

hi nexustec, here's an easy way to do it. First you need to need to add ADODB to the 'uses' line at the top of the unit.


function runsql(sql: string; returnRS: boolean): _RecordSet;
begin
        try

        ADOQuery1:=TAdoQuery.Create(nil);
        ADOQuery1.Connection:=connection;

        if returnRS then begin
                ADOQuery1.SQL.text:=sql;
                ADOQuery1.Active:=true;
                result:=ADOQuery1.Recordset;
        end else begin
                ADOQuery1.SQL.text:=sql;

                result:=nil;
        end;

        ADOQuery1.Close;

        ADOQuery1.Free;

        except
                showmessage('error executing: ' + sql);

                connection.Connected:=false;
                connection.Connected:=true;
        end;
end;





procedure test;
var rs: _RecordSet;
begin
        rs:=runsql('select * from customer', true);
end;

procedure test2;
begin
        runsql('insert into customer (CUSTOMER_NUMBER) values (1000)', false);
end;
