Hello

I have a serious problem.

My application has multiple screens. A sub-screen inputs
data into a database using Ttable components and SQLQueries all linked to each other. Calculations are also done and the results are also entered into the databas.

Another screen calls a report that reads the data from the same table that was enterd into previously.

I run my application and go down to the input screen and update the tables referred to previously.  then I exit from that screen and go to the reports screen. When I run the report it does not include the updated data that I had entered just a moment ago but insted gives me the old data that was in the table.

If I terminate my application and re-run it going straight to the the report screen and execute the report THEN only does the report contain the updated data .  I repeat the process of entering the data and calling the report and the same problem occurs .

What is going on here?
Why does the report not give me the data that I had just updated while the program is running.
Why does the application have to be terminated and re-run for the report to contain the updated data.

Hi,
Sound like you need to close the database then open it back up.
That would solve the problem of the missing data.

Hello again ....

I do not understand... please explain exactly what I have to do ...
I have tried all that I could think of doing.

If there is any code please give an example

Try this:
Datebase1.close;
Database1.open;

That closes the database, then opens it so it rereads all the data in the database thus you should have all the updated info.

Hope that helps,
