I have a ListView component with it´s ViwStyle = vsReport. In it I have 3 Coloumns. Example:
With some values on only two columns, like:

Description   |   Value   |   Total  
Keyboard           245
Mouse              130
CPU                   10      

I want to search the list view for a certain description and edit the column "Total".
For Example I need to search Mouse and put it´s total to 400.

Description   |   Value   |   Total  
Keyboard          245
Mouse             130           400
CPU                  10

Is there a way of doing this ? Or how can I solve it ? It can be with a diferent component.

Does it mean that you want to search for multiple rows with Description Mouse ? ( because 130 is not equal of 400 )

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

But now when I try to read it´s value to do a sum, it reads with trash. For example: I found the Caption 'MOUSE' and added 400 to it. But when I return to it to sum 200 (to become 600) I need to read the value then do the addition. But when I read it it comes with trash like: '400' #$D#$A#$D. How can I take this trash out ?

you read the sum like this:

var
  sum   : Real;
begin
  sum := FloatToStr(ListView1.Items[counter].SubItems[2]);
