Where is the data stored until ApplyUpdates is called

I need to read data that has been posted to a table before ApplyUpdates is called.  Using Delphi 3 and Guptas SQLBase database.  When the data is posted, the records are not visible in the table until ApplyUpdates is called.  
Does anyone know where the cached records are stored?

Thanks for  your answer.  I have tried Dataset.Recordcount after inserting 3 records.  The count always returns 0.

What components are you using for your datasets


Note unidirectional datasets will not return the RecordCount nor will they allow you to use First, or Prior

Sorry I'm not familiar with sqlDirect components, but the principle should be the same

If you are adding data directly to the dataset, there is no reason the data should not be displayed as you type it in otherwise how do you know what you are typing in.
Unless you are adding data to a temporary dataset or object and a different function adds the records to the dataset before calling ApplyUpdates

I would very much like to see the code for this if you can post it here

I did not clarify my question accurately enough.  I was attempting to access the records from a dll where the recoredset is not visible.

If I had worded the question correctly, I'm sure I would have received a more contextually accurate answer.
