Below is the list of fixes and improvements in Active Query Builder VCL Edition v.126.96.36.199.
+ SQLite: The query properties form is made to define LIMIT, etc. + SQLite: The component now can fetch metadata from "attached" databases - SQLite: LIMIT support in the main query is fixed. - SQL dialects without databases support (like Oracle) didn't skip default schema from object names. Fixed now. + Oracle: Fetching user comments for objects and fields into LongDescription is made. + Improved processing of user input in Criteria cells. Now strings like "like qwe qwe" will be translated to "like 'qwe qwe'". + MS SQL Server: DatePart, DateName, DateDiff, DateAdd builtin functions support is made. - Oracle: Parsing of the SEED keyword is fixed. + The new TacMSAccessSyntaxProvider.LoadQueriesWithParameters property is made for flagging metadata loader to get queries with parameters into metadata container as stored procedures (they still can not be used in SELECT queries, so you need to handle these objects in specific way, not using AQB). + The new TacMSAccessSyntaxProvider.LoadLinkedTables property is made to control loading of linked database objects into metadata container. + The new helper functions are added to the TacBaseSQLContext object for splitting full name by parts: ExtractNameFromFullName, ExtractSchemaFromFullName, ExtractDatabaseFromFullName. - Oracle: Recursive query format is fixed now. - MS SQL: Most type names can be used are valid identifiers now. + The new set of helpers are added to the Metadata Container to add objects by their full or partially qualified names: AddObject, AddTable, AddView, AddProcedure, AddSynonym. + The new properties are made to control case sensitivity of metadata filter items: TacMetadataFilterItem.SchemaMaskCaseSensitive and TacMetadataFilterItem.ObjectMaskCaseSensitive. + The new events are added to control unchecking of a field from the datasource field list: OnDatasourceFieldRemoving and OnDatasourceFieldRemoved. + The new properties are made to force the query builder to show or omit the AS keyword in alias definition. Use the TacQueryBuilder and TacBaseSQLBuilder AsKeywordInExpressionAlias and AsKeywordInObjectAlias properties for this purpose. - Some small fixes are made for custom aggregate functions support. - Subtle AV on closing control is fixed. - Localizer fixed for RAD Studio 2009 and higher.

We have been using Active Query Builder for over a year and must say that both the product and support have been outstanding!
We chose Active Query Builder due to its flexibility and features, but have been truly pleased by its power and hidden capabilities. ...
In summary Active Query Builder provides excellent components, great support and a very flexible feature set. It has allowed us to provide features to our end users that I did not think would be possible in the first release of our new tools and in a timeframe that was much shorter than planned. I would recommend that anyone dealing with databases in the .Net world should be aware of this component and its capabilities!
