In this matter we are 2 sides of a coin. I have never used BDE to access

For using ADO I would recommend building a test file on the following

adodb = new adodatabase()
//adodb.connectionstring = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51
//adodb.connectionString = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 8.0 Unicode
adodb.connectionstring = "Driver={MariaDB ODBC 3.1
Driver};Server=localhost;Database=muneem;UID=root;PWD=;Port=3306;option=71303680" = true

q = new adoquery()
q.database = adodb
q.sql = "select * from reminder order by due_date " = true

The above lines have multiple connection strings for variety of drivers.
Use the one you are using and remove the rest.

You would be required to change other info like the database name,
userid etc. to suit your needs.

If it runs without error then you can use the executesql method of adodb
object to execute sql. These sql can be for anything insert update or

Once you have  working connection then you can use a single query to
insert multiple lines that would run faster than inserting 1 row per query.
