If you are using a DBGrid,

 fields[0]

 if its a string or you want it as a string, fields[0].asString

OR if you know your table name

  MyTable.Fields[0].asString;

I would always advice getting data using its name.
In most cases it is just what are interested in.

DBGrid1.DataSource.DataSet.FieldByName('Cst_firstname').asString;

Hi peruzzi
Never mind points. But believe me absolutely avoid getting data by column number. I'm sure Shane will tell You the same.

I will tell you that it is recommended that you use the FieldByName method versus the fields array. Whether or not you should "absolutely  avoid" it,  could be called into question. I have used it successfuly in the past, but I try to stay away from using it, and most always use the FieldByName.

I didn't know exactly what you were trying to achieve, and your question was little hard to understand, but when I saw "first column", i thought thats what you were looking for.

Thanks Mokule!
