Updating a table immediately

I have a form with several TDBEdit components, relating to a TTable and TDataSource components.Linked to these components are several TFields, the values of which I use to perform calculations.When the data is changed, posted and refreshed and the button that performs the calculations is clicked, the results are consistent with the data BEFORE it was changed.If, however, I come out of the application and restart it the results are based on the new data.My question is : how can I set the data to update  immediately, so that the TField.value property is the current one?Many thanks in anticipation.Daren Pearcy

THIS WORKS FINE ON A ONE FORM APPLICATION, BUT IF THE TTABLE IS ON ONE FORM, AND YOU ARE DOING CALCULATIONS ON ANOTHER FORM IT DOES NOT.HOWEVER, THANKYOU FOR POINTING ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

Daren,

You didn't say anything about more than one form being involved, did you? If you had, I would have said:

otherform.table1.refresh;
application.processmessages;
{recalculate}

My answer was an abolsutely perfect response to the question - if your question was less than perfect, it should not reflect on the points you award.
