Hi All,

I've been having some fun trying to change the BDE 'block size' during run time. I need to generate large answer tables and I don't want to drag every user though the BDE Administrator. I have no access to their machines other than my software. I like the idea of only modifying the settings when my program is running instead of changing their idapi.cfg file.

 "rptSession" is a TSession component in the below example.

TStringList* tsl = new TStringList();

rptSession->GetConfigParams("\CONFIGURATION\DRIVERS\NATIVE\PARADOX\%s","BLOCK SIZE",tsl);

I can compile, and no matter what permutation of path I dictate, the engine can't find the parameter that I specify.

I want to read the current block size, then modify it while the session is active.

Thanks in Advance!
