TQuery results.

Hi.

I've got an application I'm working on and I need to do the following...

 function GetCustomerName(sAccNum: String): String;
 begin
   with TQuery.Create(nil) do begin
     DatabaseName:='RelevantAliasName';
     SQL.Add('Select CustomerName from CustomerDetails where AccountNumber='''+sAccNum+'''');
     ExecSQL;
     Result:=??????????;
     free;
   end;
 end;

so that I can simply do something like....

  ShowMessage(GetCustomerName('1234'));

The problem I have is the results line.  Can someone tell me how to reference the results that I glean in this manner?  (I've tried referencing the TFields property, Fields, but there appears to be nothing in it.)

Thanks,

John.

try

result := fieldByName('CustomerName').AsString;
or
result := fields[0].AsString;

better do a test before like

if not IsEmpty then
  result := fieldByName('CustomerName').AsString;
else
  result := '';

if this not solves this, then use a var instead of with ... do

oh, and just use open instead of execsql or SQL.Exec

Thanks Meikl.

Quite annoying that I'd already tried that and it hadn't worked!  (Only difference was the check IsEmpty.)

Thanks again,

John.
