Hi folks,

I´ve already looked forward and read about GENERATORs and TRIGGERs (for days). I am using Delphi 7 and Firebird with dbExpress components (i need to implement this in dbExpress).

My NOOB question is: could anyone do a example for me (?)using:
- SQLConnection + SQLQuery + ClientDataSet + DataSetProvider;
- 2 buttons (INSERT and POST);
- 1 DBGrid

Suppose that i just have one table called CUSTOMER and this table contains just two fields (ID and CUSTOMER_NAME).

What i deeply need is: when i click in INSERT button, i just fill the field CUSTOMER_NAME (in the DBGrid) with anyname and, after click in POST, i´d like that the GENERATOR works (as well the TRIGGER) and i could see, immediatly, the NUMBER generated besides the CUSTOMER_NAME (in the field ID, which is in the DBGrid too).

Hey guys, i deeply need it. If anyone helps me, i will be very happy.

Best regards and thx. for now.

The best way to get the generated number is to implement the INSERT in a stored procedure then make it an OUT parameter.

Another way is to get a bookmark for the newly inserted record, refresh/requery the table, then go back to the bookmarked record. Remember to call DisableControls before refreshing to minimize too much refresh. Call EnableControls after the refresh.

Hope this helps...

Thx. for your comments.

I like the STORED PROCEDURE way. Must i create this STORED PROCEDURE in Delphi or in the database level? Could you give a example using SP?
