Every expert,

How can I add a column (eg. FullName) to the DBGrid that is combine of other fields (eg. FirstName + LastName) in the same DBGrid ??????

By the way, how can I link a DBEdit to a field (eg. FullName) that is combin of other fields (eg. FirstName + LastName) in the Table without adding a field to the Table ??????

I'll try a step-by-step answer:

1. Double click your TTable or TQuery component;

2. Right click the fields editor area;

3. Choose 'New Field...' option;

4. Type a name for the new field, e.g. "FullName";

5. Choose String for the Type;

6. Check the "Calculated" option for 'Field type';

7. Click OK;

8. Put the following code in the "OnCalcFields" event handler of TQuery or TTable component:
 begin
   FullName.AsString := FirstName.AsString + ' ' + LastName;
 end

9. Now, when you go to the Columns property editor of the DBGrid component, the new field must be available.

10. ADD IT !!

The principle is the same to link the DBEdit. Follow the steps 1 to 8 and then choose the new field (FullName) in the DataField property of DBEdit.

I Hope this can helps.
