TQuery component Active Property = TRUE in design mode?

Is it possible for a TQuery component to have its active
property set to true in design mode?

Every time I try it with a parameterized query I get
errors like "Cannot find table inventry.db".
If I remove the parameters from the query it seems
to work...

Just wondering...
