1)i haven't worked with ADO, so i can not give you an 100% accurate answer. i took a look into your code and in my opinion everything looks ok.
i'm working a lot with IBObjects, and from there i now that if the database object hasn't requestlive property set to true, then nothing isn't saved into your database even your quey return that the posting event has been accomplished. why your database is not in the insert/edit mode i can not figure out.
2) try to debbug your code using watch and see what's happening with your querry and variables
3) here you can find some topics regarding how to code using ADO

best regards,

Thank you for responding. I appriciate it.
