Please note that Bhagyesht is right: this question will find more experts that can answer it if you move it to Programming/Delphi.

However, it found me. =)

You can try something like this:


// Num and Vers are strings holding values for the Number and Version fields of the database.
// Together, these two field form a unique key.

//Connect to the DB through ADO. Then:


{ Find the record to modify: }
FoundIt := ADODataSet.Locate('Number;Version',VarArrayOf([Num, Vers]), []);

if FoundIt then
begin
{ Put the data set into edit mode: }
   ADODataSet.Edit;

{ Change the value of the "IsDirty" field to 'false' (This is from quite an odd programme where
the DB was not actually a DB but an Excel sheet, so, this boolean value is also stored as a string, for formatting problems with Excel): }
   ADODataSet['Is Dirty']:='false';

{ Record the change in the DataBase. Without this, changes take no effect: }
   ADODataSet.Post;
end; { if }


Hope it helps:

Jack
