I use the revdb and Valentina XCMD directly in Revolution quite a bit 
but I am not very familiar with the Database controls available through 
the Query Builder.  I prefer bypassing the Query Builder and using my 
own library so that I have more control over how/when data is being 

If you are you want to bypass the Query Builder I have a library which 
handles connections to multiple databases, puts data returned from a 
sql statement into an array, updates the db from arrays, etc.  It 
drastically reduces the amount of code you have to write.  I plan on 
doing a tutorial and examples eventually but I haven't had time yet and 
if you are interested in going this route it would give me a good 
excuse to get started :-)
