I've got a DBGrid in which several titles are listed with their media (CD,LP,MC). I've made the Datasource of the grid a Query,because the titles are linked to a media DBFile using a Media_ID field. (I wanted the  name of the medium appear in the GRID rather than the ID,so I thought I had to use a Query here). But updating a record is now causing a problem,because the Query is readonly. Is there a standard solution for this sort of problem?

Can you give a bit more detail.

I understand this as you having 2 tables that are linked together
in the query. You need to display fields from both querys. When you update the dbgrid you want to update the appropriate tables.

The reason you cannot set the Query RequestLive to true is because you are selecting from multiple tables.

You can look at the cached updates and the UpdateSQL component.
I do not have time to sort out example code but if you look at those you may be able to figure out how to do it.

Ronit:I already did that,but it don't work. Thanks for the suggestion though.
CFantin:OK,the situation is as follows:
      
      File1:Sources           File2:Media
      Source_ID                     
      Source_Medium    --->      Medium_ID      
      Source_Title             Medium_Name
      enz..

In the DBGrid I want listed: Source_ID Source_Title Medium_Name
Now I want the user to be able to update the record in the DBGrid,if it is possible using a DBListbox for looking up the Source.
Thanks for your help

Use a Ttable as database source. In the field editor add a new field and make it a lookupfield. point it to the secondary table like this:

Dataset=Media
Keyfield=Source_medum
Lookupfield=Medium_id
Resultfield=Medium.name

Remember to setup a Fieldname,Fieldtype+size for the new field.

This will also give you a dropdown list when you click
(or dubbleclick) in the dbgrid
