I thought that I had it sorted out.

I thought that I had it sorted out.

I thought that I had it sorted out. I got no errors, but it didn't work.

I stepped through the Code and checked the value with Add Watch. Everything was perfect. I hit ExecSQL and no error! Wow, I did it!

Well, no I didn't. I checked the database (I did make a backup in case anything went wrong), but when I looked in the database table, NOTHING had been updated at all.

Do I need a Commit? Is ExecSQL correct or is there a new command now?

RE: I thought that I had it sorted out.

You should only need a commit if you started a transaction. ExecSQL should do what you need it to do. If the database does support transactions, typically you can see what transaction level you're in by looking at a transaction level property.

If you're going through an ODBC driver you could try turning on ODBC trace (in the odbcad32.exe control panel) and see what's being passed on to the database driver.

The TDBConnection (or whatever it is called) might have events to let you monitor what's going through it and if a final commit is happening.
