Working with parameter and without parameter Adoquery - doubt

Hello guys

I would like to know if I can have problem if I made a query with parameter and another time make the same query without parameter with the same adoquery? Example:

with qaux do Begin
  Close;
  Sql.Clear;
  Sql.Add('SELECT * FROM CLIENT');
  Sql.Add('WHERE CP_CODIGO=:P1');
  Parameters.parambyname('P1').Value := 12
  Open
end;

With Qaux do begin
  Close;
  Sql.Clear;
  Sql.Add('SELECT * FROM CLIENT');
  Sql.Add('WHERE CP_CODIGO=20');
  Open
End;

As you can see, my first query I am using parameters and the second not. When I clean the SQL it reset my query without parameter? Can I have any problem with my query changing the way with or without parameter?

No either way should work, though you should declare the .dataType property as well when creating a parameter.

Forgot to say that if you are going to use the second method, and the parameter is a string and not a number, don't forget to use quotedStr( 'myString')

ie
sql.add('WHERE myStringFieldValue = ' + quotedStr( 'myString'))
not
sql.add('WHERE myStringFieldValue = myString)

databases like MSSQL or Oracle store all queries done
and each query consumes memory, tablespace, etc

type A
SELECT * FROM CLIENT WHERE CP_CODIGO=:PARAM1
is 1 query no matter how many values you provide for :PARAM1

type B
SELECT * FROM CLIENT WHERE CP_CODIGO=20
SELECT * FROM CLIENT WHERE CP_CODIGO=40

each of these 2 queries are totally different for the database
and it will store them separately, so consuming memory, etc ...

so if you have a lot of querys like type B
your database will perform slower

with ADO it is possible you need to create the parameters manually and assign the datatype

sql.add(SELECT * FROM CLIENT');
Sql.Add('WHERE CP_CODIGO=:P1');
with Parameters.Add do
begin
  Name := 'P1';
  DataType := ftInteger;
end;
