Hmm, I disagree. For instance with Postgresql it would only be 
absolutely reliable if this:

 >      DataSource1.Save
 >      i = DataSource1.Connection.Exec(sSQL)[0]

would have been encapsulated inside a transaction.

If 'students_id' is a serial, then the correct procedure would be to:


Start a transaction with "Begin;".

Get the next serial number of 'students_id' with

"select nextval(pg_get_serial_sequence('students', 'students_id')) as 

Store the tuple together with students_id = new_id.

Commit the transaction with "Commit;".

If an error happened rollback the transaction with "Rollback;".


Other RDBMS may have other commands but act the same.

Alles Gute
