I'm using Delphi1 and have a DBgrid with cols 1 thru 7.  Data Entry is allowed in cols 2 thru 7.  I would like to generate totals for cols 2 thru 7 as data is entered into a cell.  Ideally, the totals would be displayed in a second grid.

Example code is very much appreciated.

Bisrael,

do you need to display it into a second dbgrid or stringgrid?

what you can do :

use a calculated field, which just sums up the columns you need and display this calculated field into the second dbgrid.

after every event (recordchange, insert, etc) calculate the sum of the columns and add these to a grid.


I guess you mean one, so I give you some source for that :

I've added in the fieldseditor of table1 all the fields + a calculated field

Ive added two grids and in one grid i only show the calculated field (columns property) I don't know anymore if this is available in D1. If not, then you've to make two tables pointing to the same datatable and then through the fieldseditor only show the calc field.

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  Db, DBTables, Grids, DBGrids;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Table1: TTable;
    Table1SpeciesNo: TFloatField;
    Table1Category: TStringField;
    Table1Common_Name: TStringField;
    Table1SpeciesName: TStringField;
    Table1Lengthcm: TFloatField;
    Table1Length_In: TFloatField;
    Table1Notes: TMemoField;
    Table1Graphic: TGraphicField;
    Table1calc: TCurrencyField;
    DataSource1: TDataSource;
    DBGrid1: TDBGrid;
    DBGrid2: TDBGrid;
    procedure Table1CalcFields(DataSet: TDataSet);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Table1CalcFields(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
 dataset.FieldByName('Calc').AsFloat :=
  dataset.FieldByName('Species No').AsInteger *
  dataset.FieldByName('Length_In').AsFloat
end;

end.

Regards, Zif.
