Using the psql utility I insert three records into a 6.5.3 postgresql table with or without indexes. I SELECT * and the records are retrieved in the order I inserted them, and that's correct.
However, if I SELECT the records from a Delphi 5 application, using the BDE and the latest ODBC driver, the result set is inverted, i.e., on the same index key, the last record I inserted is listed first and so on.
This forces me to use an index even for tables I don't need one. Or worse yet, I need to create a second, auxiliary field on the table and add it to the index when I have one in order to get the proper order of the inserted records.
I don't know if I should blame Borland's BDE or the ODBC driver.
Any clues about this problem?
Thanks in advance,
