Hello

  That's you are trying to call post method for the table, but u didn't add new record or modify record
you need to call append or edit befor post

 Table2.Edit;
 Table2['CustNo'] := 99;
 Table2.Post;

  but if you didn't call edit, it will give you the error message that u wrote

Best regards

Hello again

   for better way to get rid of this problem, always check about the table state before you call post method

  if Table2.State in [dsInsert,dsEdit] then
    Table2.Post;
