I use this piece of code (from the Sams book) to search for a record in a db and I get the error message that the dataset is not in edit or insert mode (suppose this is because I use the SetKey command).
Can anybody tell me what's going wrong?



procedure TForm1.btnSearchClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
     CustInfo.SetKey ;
     CustInfo.IndexName := 'ByCompany';
     CustInfo.FieldByName ('Company').asString := txtSearch.Text ;
     CustInfo.GotoNearest ;
end;

The order should be like this instead:


         CustInfo.IndexName := 'ByCompany';
         CustInfo.SetKey ;
         CustInfo.FieldByName ('Company').asString := txtSearch.Text ;
         CustInfo.GotoNearest ;

Try also TTable.Locate...
