The problem for the crashes may be a lot of things. I was just pointing
out that when a crash occurs the _qsql???.dbf don't get a chance to be
cleaned up like they do when an app is closed properly and the BDE gets
a chance to clean up after itself.

I would focus on the cause of the crash in your code, which I see Akshat
and Mervyn are working with you on. You should be able to do multiple
requeries without a crash, so something is going on ...
