How too does I get a result from a SQL statmaent when I'm asking a Pervasive database.
My code:
 sSQL := eSQL.Text;
  Query1.Close;
  Query1.SQL.Clear;
  iResultat := Query1.SQL.Add(select count(*) from jantest1 where maalernr=231;);
  if iResultat = 3 then
    showmessage('feil');
  Query1.ExecSQL;

iResultat only gets too be 0. But when i uses the same SQL statment direktly in the Pervasive database I get iResultat := 1, because there is a maalernr that is equal too 231.

P.S the result dont have too be an integer.

How too solve this?

Query1.Close;
  Query1.SQL.Clear;
  Query1.SQL.Add('select count(*) from jantest1 where maalernr=231');
 query1.open
if query1.fields[0].asinteger=3 then showmessage('Erorr')

 Query1.ExecSQL executes a command, like update mytable..
query1.open return a result set.

The error message comes from other code not from the above one. So if you need this solved you should paste your code here.

as has been stated your using the wrong method call

from TQuery help...Call ExecSQL to execute the SQL statement currently assigned to the SQL property. Use ExecSQL to execute queries that do not return a cursor to data (such as INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and CREATE TABLE).

Use Active or Open when you need a result set returned back...
