DBGrid drag&drop

I am trying DBGrid drag&drop to change the seq (a ranking field) through adoQuery. I can get the destination seq, but I can't get the source seq (the code in StartDrag event doesn't seem to work)

Can anyone give a simple example using DBGrid drag&drop to get the SOURCE record data?

Thanks in advance.

//******Code as below******
procedure TtestForm.DBGrid1StartDrag(Sender: TObject;
  var DragObject: TDragObject);
var
  i:integer;
  s:string;
begin
  i:=qry1.fieldByName('seq').asinteger;
  s:=intToStr(i);

  edtStart.Clear;
  edtStart.Text:=s;
  edtStart.Text:=edtEnd.Text;
end;

procedure TtestForm.DBGrid1DragOver(Sender, Source: TObject; X, Y: Integer;
  State: TDragState; var Accept: Boolean);
begin
  Accept := Source is TDBGrid;
end;

procedure TtestForm.DBGrid1DragDrop(Sender, Source: TObject; X,
  Y: Integer);
var
  cl:TGridCoord;
  i,recNo1:integer;
  s:string;
begin
  cl:=DBGrid1.MouseCoord(x,y);
  recNo1:=cl.Y;
  with qry1 do
  begin
    DisableControls;
    first;
    if recNo1>1 then
    begin
      for i:=1 to recNo1-1 do
        next;
    end;
    EnableControls;

    s:=qry1.fieldbyname('seq').AsString;
    edtEnd.Clear;
    edtEnd.Text:=s;
  end;
end;

from my paq (even not with ado, but should work too)

a sample for resorting grid entries with drag&drop

unit dbg_dd_u;

interface

uses
