Error SQL-Update dBase-table with Delphi

I am a new user to this forum, so please forgive my newbie-faults...
Recently i am (re)developing a Delphi-app which amongst other things is updating dBase-tables with SQL.
The records however are not updated. Instead the original record is deleted (DELETED() = .T.) and a new record with the updated values is added to the table. The number of records is thus increasing. Other applications may find the wrong record, the one with the DELETED-sign until i apply the native dBase-command PACK.
The SQL-code:
active := false;
sql.add('update voorraad set ');
sql.add('kastloc = "' + trim(Artikel.Kastloc) + '"');
sql.add(', artomslang = "' + trim(Artikel.artomslang) + '"');
sql.add(', artvoor = ' + inttostr(Artikel.Artvoor));
sql.add(', artomschr = "' + trim(Artikel.artomschr) + '"');
sql.add(', syncdatum = "' + formatdatetime('MM"/"DD"/"YYYY',date) + '" ');
sql.add(' where artnummer = "' + trim(Artikel.Artnummer) + '"');
active := false;

Delphi 5.62, app is running on Win98 SE-desktop
dBase IV (table is residing on a Novell 4.1 server, Alias via BDE)

Any ideas whats going wrong?

Thanks in advance!
