You can use TQuery and

Query1.Active := False;
Query1.SQL := 'Select SUM(Your Calculation Formula) as SumResult FROM TableName WHERE something'
Query1.Active := True;
Edit1.Text := Query1.FieldByName('SumResult').AsString;

If you are talking about a Delphi Calculated field, I know of no means (in general) other than iterating through the recordset.
