Delphi databases

For some reason

editengineersname.edittext:=combobox1.text;
editengineersname.text:=combobox1.text;

When i do that the dbeedit boxchanges to the text i specified, but its not permenent, as soon as i move to the box where i just put the text, it reverts back to what was in the box before. however if i create a new record and instead of editing the box i move onto another record and then move back again the data in the dbeeditbox works fine.  So i try to post the data but its says something about, not in edit or insert mode, but the datbase works fine other than that. all i need it for is to reduce input of the user for example, select between 5 different people instead of having to constantly type in thier names.

thanks

Craig C.

  editengineersname.Field.AsString :=combobox1.text; //assign to DataField
