'Error Creating Cursor Handle'

'Error Creating Cursor Handle'

'Error Creating Cursor Handle'
Does anybody know what this means. Ihave a project with around 15 TQuery or TTable comps on it. everything was fine, then i added one more TQuery to do an INSERT and i getthe above error every time i try to activate it, the INSERT still works, i just get the error after. TQuerys doing insert that were added before this one still work ok and if a add a TQuery and do a SELECT that is ok. any ideas?

RE: 'Error Creating Cursor Handle'

When you execute an SQL query that returns a result set, such as a SELECT statement, use TQuery.Open.

An INSERT statement (and UPDATE, DELETE, etc.) which doesn't return a result set, should be executed with the TQuery.ExecSQL method.

The error you are receiving indicates that the BDE is not able to create a cursor on the result set from the query, in this case, because there was no result set returned.

RE: 'Error Creating Cursor Handle'

I seem to get this error periodically. Usually it's because I have forgotton to place the DataBase Name on the TQuery object.
