Creating SQL Statements for Update Components

From InterBase

Go Up to Using Update Objects to Update a Dataset

To update a record in an associated dataset, an update object uses one of three SQL statements. The four SQL statements delete, insert, refresh, and modify records cached for update. The statements are contained in the update object’s string list properties DeleteSQL, InsertSQL, RefreshSQL, and ModifySQL. As each update object is used to update a single table, the object’s update statements each reference the same base table.

As the update for each record is applied, one of the four SQL statements is executed against the base table updated. Which SQL statement is executed depends on the UpdateKind parameter automatically generated for each record’s update.

Creating the SQL statements for update objects can be done at design time or at runtime. The sections that follow describe the process of creating update SQL statements in greater detail.
