hi
i have a problem with TADOQuery,
i made a Query in my form like this :

var SQuery:TADOQuery;
     SDataSource;TDataSource;
begin
  SQuery:=TADOQuery.create(nil);
  SQuery.connection:=my_connection; //this connection exist and set to DB
  SQuery.Close;
  SQuery.SQL.Clear;
  SQuery.SQL.Text := 'select * from car';
  SQuery.Open;
  SDataSource := TDataSource.Create(nil);
  SDataSource.DataSet := SQuery;
  DBGrid1.DataSource := SDataSource;
end;

i wanna release Query and i know that i must write    SQuery.Free;      but i wanna first  check that my Query created or not ?
if Query exist then i wanna free it else i dont want to do anything,
how can i check it, what's the commands for that ?

if Assigned(SQuery) then
  SQuery.Free ;

or

if SQuery <> nil then
  SQuery.Free ;

i need to check query in 3 places , and when i check Assigned(Qry1) for the first time it works correctly , but in the second time it returns TRUE again and i get errors .
why does it return TRUE when i FREE it before?
in Submit BUTTON i FREE it but when i press EXIT BUTTON , Assign return TRUE and in the FREE line i get error , i think it must return FALSE for second time , is it right?
what's my problem ?
how can i correct it ?

Sorry Mahsa60,
Should be...

if Assigned(SQuery) then
  FreeAndNil(SQuery) ;

This ensures that var is set to nil.

Assigned will sometimes still return True if you do not set the pointer to nil

  SQuery.Free;
  SQuery := nil;

or use

FreeAndNil(SQuery).
