cavalry,

 use select Sum(..) as sumofvalue from ...

Then go to the fieldeditor. Read in fields, there you'll find sumofvalue. Then go to dbtext. Select correct database, select sumofvalue as field.

Regards, Zif.

hi cavalry,

a other method to show static values
if the sum the only field in your query you can use Fields[0]

  query1.open;
  label1.Caption := floattostr(query1.Fields[0].AsFloat);
  query1.Close;

thats recommends no use of dbtextfield.

if you will use dbtextfield, then use zifs answer
