if adotable1.locate('table name','primary key',[]) then  //first locate the record 'if' exists
begin
edit1.Text := adotable1.FieldValues['db row name']
end else showmessage('Record not found');

if adotable1.locate('table name','primary key',[]) then  //first locate the record 'if' exists
begin
adotable1.Edit;
adotable1.FieldByname('db row name').AsString := edit1.Text;
adotable1.Post;
end else showmessage('Record not found');

the above mentioned is for when the table has been made and when the primary keys are set eg : the db has already been layed out...

Peace Scay7

use TDBEdit, just assign the DataSource and specify the field you want to display
