Hi EveryOne!

 Table:  MONEY.DBF
 Fields:  DESC  ftString   10
            DR      float         0
            CR      float         0
 

  When i want to display the values in the GRID it should be like this one..

  Desc      DR      CR            BALANCE
  0NE       100                     100
  TWO              -20             80
  THREE            -10             70
  FOUR     20                       90
  FIVE               -40             50
  SIX                 -50              0

 Now my question is how will i include the "BALANCE" field on the grid which is that this field "BALANCE" is not included in the TABLE money.dbf? How will i make the formula for this and assigning it to "Balance"

thanks alot!

Hello

   Create Calculated Field, here's how u can do it,

1. Drop Table component than double click on if, when the Field editor open right click and add the fields you would like to use.

2. Right click on the Field editor again and choose New field, New field window will appear to you, define field with name and data type, choose it's type as Calculated

3. From Table's events choose OnCalcField, and write the formula that will calculate your new field, as following:

procedure TForm1.Table1CalcFields(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
  Table1['MyNewField'] := Table1.fieldByName('MyField').AsInteger * 1.1;
end;

Now you would see the MyNewField add to your DBGrid, and the values will calcuated on the run time, without adding new field to your table

HTH
