I want to insert a numeric column in a Data Grid, amung the table's defined fields.

The column's user input values will be used for calculations.

My attempts have achived the insertion of a column, by adding a NEW FIELD to the ADOQuery control, giving it a TYPE of 'integer' and selecting 'Calculated' for FIELD TYPE.

But the application wont allow for the manual input of values into its cells, which is what I want.

How do I do this?

Calculated fields are just that, calculated. They do not exist physically.

You will have to physically add a new column to your table

1.) Using the maintenance app of your desired database
2.) by runtime code
3.) SQL

What database are you using?

Just in your ADO query....
select
 Field1,
 field 2,
 Int_Field_Created
from your_Table

and add all fields (double click into ADOQuery component) then set Int_FieldCreated readonly to false.....now aasign the adoquery to dataset and a DBGIRD to dataset ...that's all....
