comment Control drawing order of points from DBMS in MapInfo?
Yeah, running a query on a live table in MapInfo will make MapInfo download all the data into your DBMS table. Performance wise it would be better to use a linked table if you know you will be running queries on the DBMS table

comment Display all field of one record in mapbasic
If you click on a point in the map with the Info Tool you'll see the values for all columns in the Info Window. Would that work for you?

comment Techniques for reducing a MapInfo TAB's file size without losing too much integrity?
"reduced for use" ... Can you elaborate a bit more on this? Is the size of the table close to 2 GB? Is the width of each row close to 4 KB (with the later versions 64KB)? Are you having performance issues? We need a bit more information in order to give you some useful advice

comment How do I get value from edittext or text field in MapBasic
MapBasic has some neat function for formatting numbers (FormatNUmber$()) and deformating numbers DeformatNumber$(). They might come in handy here, too. The first will add grouping digits and decimal digits set in the Region Settings to the value and return a string with these. The second will assume the string has grouping digits and decimal digits and convert these back. You still need to use the Val() function to cast it to a numeric value.

comment MapInfo Universal Translator turning integer columns to decimal
Well, no. It's says that shape files are using Number(11,0) in stead of Integer. Not sure how big a difference that is. I also wonder if MapInfo Pro by default will interpret Number(11,0) as Integer if you import a Shape file into MapInfo Pro

comment File Conversion using ogr2ogr gui
So UT took more time, but did it at least generate tab files that could be opened by MapInfo Pro. You might have run into issues with the above because the tables didn't meet some of the limitations that the tab format has, such as character fields can be wider than 254.

Too bad you aren't able to add the Identity type to your AddressID column as that would make SQL Server manage this for you
