Executes the SQL statement for the query.

Delphi syntax:

procedure ExecSQL;

C++ syntax:

void __fastcall ExecSQL(void);


Call ExecSQL to execute the SQL statement currently assigned to the SQL property. Use ExecSQL to execute queries that do not return a cursor to data (such as INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and CREATE TABLE).


For SELECT statements, call Open instead of ExecSQL.

ExecSQL prepares the statement in SQL property for execution if it has not already been prepared. To speed performance, an application should ordinarily call Prepare before calling ExecSQL for the first time.
