Using table components

From InterBase

Go Up to Working with Tables

A table component gives you access to every row and column in an underlying database table. You can view and edit data in every column and row of a table. You can work with a range of rows in a table, and you can filter records to retrieve a subset of all records in a table based on filter criteria you specify. You can search for records, copy, rename, or delete entire tables, and create master/detail relationships between tables.

A table component always references a single database table. If you need to access multiple tables with a single component, or if you are only interested in a subset of rows and columns in one or more tables, you should use a TIBQuery or TIBDataSet component instead of a TIBTable component. For more information about TIBQuery and TIBDataSet components, see Working with Queries.
