Hi guys,

I want to import the local computers date,
first, I want to "see" it in a DBEdit object, and then
I want it to be entered in a *.dbf table field.

How do I do this?

Thanks,
Blash

Hello

  U can use the date function to return the current date  

  Table1.Append;
  DBEdit2.Text := DateToStr(Date);
  Table1.Post;

I get to see my sys date on the screen alright, but I can't see it in my database table. Maybe it's because I am
using the OnFormCreate event for this?

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
//DBEdit9.Text := FormatDateTime('dd.mm.yyyy',Now);
FMXUtils.CopyFile('c:\windows\desktop\zbnalgl0.dbf','c:\windows\desktop\temp\');
RenameFile('c:\windows\desktop\temp\zbnalgl0.dbf', 'c:\windows\desktop\zbnalgl.dbf');
Table2.TableName:= 'zbnalgl.dbf';
Table2.Active:=True;
//
Table2.Append;
DBEdit9.Text:=DateToStr(Date);
Table2.Post;
end;

What is the database name in Table2?

Do you have a TDataBase component defined?.

Do you have a TDataSource defined?,

Does the data source point to Table2?

Does the DBEdit9 point to that TDataSource?

Does the DEBEdit9 field name point to the correponding field in the DBF table?

Sorry for the questions, but your code, except for the FMXUtils that I don't know what it is, looks fine.
