Delphi: Get the number of affected Rows of an Update

Hi all !
Using an Query-Object in Delphi 5, I want to get back the number of affected rows of an Update. How to do this.
I read about the "returning"-string but how to use it ?
Delphi:
query1.sql := 'update TABLE set id = 3 where port = 123';
query1.ExecSQL;
Showmessage(  [affected rows]  );
Thank you ...

just lookup the rowsAffected-property after execSQL like

query1.ExecSQL;
Showmessage(inttostr(query1.rowsaffected));

from delphi help:

----------------------
Returns the number of rows operated upon by the latest query execution.

Delphi syntax:

property RowsAffected: Integer;

Description

Inspect RowsAffected to determine how many rows were updated or deleted by the last query operation. If no rows were updated or deleted, RowsAffected has a value of zero. RowsAffected will have a value of –1 if the execution of the SQL statement could not be executed due to an error condition. This latter situation would typically follow the raising of an exception.
---------------------

hope this helps
