Post data to a table

I am trying to post data and update a table as I am running through a loop.  I have already done table.edit and table.post.  However, when the loop gets to table.post, it displays an error message that says my dataset is not in edit or insert mode.  Is there a way to post data to a table each time my program executes through a loop??

while not (tblAgents.Eof) and (x < 51) do
begin
  edtSearch.Text := 'SHAFERJO';
  tblAgents.SQL.Clear;
  tblAgents.SQL.Add('Select * from Agents where AgentId = '+QuotedStr( startHere ) );
  tblAgents.Active := True;
  strEmail := tblAgents.fieldbyname('Email').AsString;
  strAgentId := tblAgents.fieldbyname('AgentId').AsString;
  strEmailStatus := tblAgents.fieldbyname('EmailStatus').AsString;
  strVerifiedDate := tblAgents.fieldbyName('EmailVerified').AsDateTime;
 
  if (x = 50) then
    if (strEmail <> '') then
    begin
       //Validate to SMTP level
        iRating := con.Validate(strEmail, hexVeLevelSmtp);

        //If address is bad
        if (hexVeLevelBad = iRating) then
        begin
          error := GetErrorString(con.Error);
          if (strEmailStatus = '1') then
             tblAgents.Fieldbyname('EmailStatus').AsString := '2';
          if (strEmailStatus = '2') then
             tblAgents.FieldByName('EmailStatus').AsString := 'I';

        //Address is good
        else
           tblAgents.FieldByName('EmailStatus').AsString := 'V';
       
        tblAgents.Edit;
        tblAgents.Post;
    end;
    tblAgents.Next;
    x := x + 1;
end;

You need to do you assign staements after the tblAgents.Edit;

example


tblAgents.Edit;

        if (hexVeLevelBad = iRating) then
        begin
          error := GetErrorString(con.Error);
          if (strEmailStatus = '1') then
             tblAgents.Fieldbyname('EmailStatus').AsString := '2';
          if (strEmailStatus = '2') then
             tblAgents.FieldByName('EmailStatus').AsString := 'I';

        //Address is good
        else
           tblAgents.FieldByName('EmailStatus').AsString := 'V';

 tblAgents.Post;
