Refreshing data

at the moment, I have a screen that then moves to one of two forms.  The problem I have is that when I view the form, go out and select another record and go back in, the displayed data is still the data from the previous record.

I need somehow to refresh the data without clearing the SQL or the query because that looses all the SQL which specifies the records to find.

try to establish a master-child relation
in delphi (properties mastersource,masterfield of the dataset).

otherwise you have to relocate the form2-data
in the afterscroll-event of the dataset on form1

No sorry.. I meant query1.AutoRefresh := true;
It's a property in the Object Inspector

From delphi help:
"When AutoRefresh is true, field values are automatically refreshed without an explicit call to the Refresh method."

I hope it helps

No this is only in BDE
sorry,

but your query is in another form, then you can let the form refresh the query when it's activated, by using the onActivate event for the form

procedure TForm2.FormActivate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  AdoQuery1.Refresh;
end;

so when you select the form "focus on it or select it" it will refresh your query
