hi

am trying to design a login network an I have tried to use gotokey technique but am having a little problem which am hoping you can help. I am using Delphi V4 Paradox 7 and I have tried to use the following code....

with Table1 do
begin
Table1.Open;
     with Table1 do begin
          SetKey;
          FieldByName('UserName').AsString:=              
          UserComboBox.Text;
          FieldByName('Password').AsString:=
          PasswordEdit.Text;
          GotoKey;
          if not Table1.GotoKey then begin
          MessageDlg('User Not Found! Please Check and
                     Try Again.', mtError, [mbOK], 0);
         
          end else
          if Table1.GotoKey then begin
             if FieldByName('User').AsString = 'Manager'  
             then
             button1.enabled:=true;
             end else
          if Table1.GotoKey then begin
             if FieldByName('User').AsString = 'Sales
             Staff' then
             button2.enabled:=true;
          end else

          if Table1.GotoKey then begin
             if FieldByName('User').AsString = 'Stock
             Controller' then                
             button3.enabled:=true;
          end;
end;


am using the DBCombobox and DBEdit to store password and username and then am using the TComboBox and TEdit when searching for record.

can someone tell me what am i doing wrong or is there another way of doing this.

Thank you

I got this error message when I tired to test this code. For instance if I select Manager from TComboBox and enter password in TEditbox button1 should be enabled, but I have this error message...

Project Project1.exe raised exception class EDatabaseError with message ?Field Password? is not indexe and cannot be modified?.



What am I doing wrong?

You need to index the Password field.  GotoKey uses indexed fields only.

I mean that you need to crate an index on the "Password" field to use SetKey.  You can create one by: Closing Delphi and then opening the table in Database Desktop (DBD.exe) File|Open|Table. With the table open, go to Table|Restructure.  Click on the Define button under Indexes.  Double click on the Password field to create an index. Check 'Maintained'. Click OK and then give it a name such as 'idxPassword'. You should now see the new index added to the Indexes list.  Close DBD.
You should be able to compile the program okay.
