    ADOTable1.TableName := RadioButton1.Caption ;
    ADOTable1.Open;

sorry forget to add this line   ADOTable1.Close;
so the code will be like the following

procedure TForm1.RadioButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 if RadioButton1.Checked then
 begin
   ADOTable1.Close;
   ADOTable1.TableName := RadioButton1.Caption ;
   ADOTable1.Open;
end;
end;

but if I prefer to use RadioGroup instead of radiobutton for each table, you will right the code one time, and will work for the all items in the radiogroup, but in radiobutton you need to right the code for each radiobutton

for the RadioGroup the code will be as following

procedure TForm1.RadioGroup1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if RadioGroup1.ItemIndex =0 then
  begin
    AdoTable1.Close;
    AdoTable1.TableName := RadioGroup1.Items[RadioGroup1.ItemIndex];
    AdoTable1.Open;
  end;
end;

Hello Bosanac

  if you want the first option to be the default in oncreate event will look like

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  RadioGroup1.ItemIndex := 0;
  AdoTable1.Close;
  AdoTable1.TableName := RadioGroup1.Items[RadioGroup1.ItemIndex];
  AdoTable1.Open;
end;

and if you want to know the current table, simply u can know that by TableName property

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage(AdoTable1.TableName);
end;

I hope that what you need :)

It is easier to pass different datasource to grid by means of radiobuttons than manipulating tables.Also I do not like opening tables by their names as I call my tables all sorts,ha,ha....
Any other way???

Should it not go like this:

procedure TForm1.RadioGroup1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
if RadioGroup1.ItemIndex =0 then
 begin
   ADOTable2.Close;
   AdoTable1.Close;
   AdoTable1.Open;
   RXDBGrid1.Datasource:=Datasource1;
   DBNavigator1.Datasource:=Datasource1;
   end else begin
   ADOTable1.Close;
   AdoTable2.Close;
   AdoTable2.Open;
   RXDBGrid1.Datasource:=Datasource2;
   DBNavigator1.Datasource:=Datasource2;
end;
end;

Hello again

  I think that what you need?

procedure TForm1.RadioGroup1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Case RadioGroup1.ItemIndex of
  0 :
    begin
      ADOTable1.Close;
      ADOTable2.Close;
      ADOTable3.Close;
      ADOTable1.Open;
      DataSource1.DataSet :=ADOTable1;
    end;
  1 :
    begin
      ADOTable1.Close;
      ADOTable2.Close;
      ADOTable3.Close;
      ADOTable2.Open;
      DataSource1.DataSet :=ADOTable2;
    end;
  2:
    begin
      ADOTable1.Close;
      ADOTable2.Close;
      ADOTable3.Close;
      ADOTable3.Open;
      DataSource1.DataSet :=ADOTable3;
    end;
  end; // case statment
  // no need to duplicate the code for each section, just here only
  RXDBGrid1.DataSource := DataSource1;
  DBNavigator1.DataSource := DataSource1;
end;

// if you click here you will know which talbe assign to the datasource1
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage(DataSource1.DataSet.GetNamePath);
end;
