this may different things,

the bde error 2501 is definitiv not caused by the division,
except you modify with the result the bde alias

as stated in the other q, you can calculations do
with a calculated field in the oncalcevent of the underlying dataset.

but i guess you've first to solve your bde error,
maybe a wrong databasedriver in the alias

meikl ;-)

hi

try this

edit3.text := inttostr(strtoint(edit1.text) div strtoint(edit2.text));

Integers can works a bit different when dividing you have to use the keyword "div" instead of "/".

try

this

edit3.text := floattostr(strtofloat(edit1.text) / strtofloat(edit2.text));

you have to make sure there are valid digits in the edit1 and edit2 control. And when using decimalseparator please
be sure to use a "." or "," depending on your decimalseparator variable.

Setting

decimalseparator := '.';

You must do this otherwise strtoint doesn't make it a float
you've got an error

do this

edit3.text := floattostr(strtofloat(edit1.text) / strtofloat(edit2.text));


edit1.text := '10'
edit2.text := '3'
edit3.text will contain the value '3.333333';

sorry your answers were correct my fault, the error came from the next row of code which is:
dbedit1.Text := edit1.text; (for saving the value in the database)
