Is there a way to use a QBE (as above) in Delphi or must I convert that
to SQL.
IF SQL, is there a way to do Left Outer Joins in the query??
Database Desktop will run the above query, but ONLY as a QBE, it will
NOT convert it
to SQL

Please e-mail to me...  rel...@{*word*104}highway.net

Thanks
Any help much appreciated.

Kent.
