On the Field1 OnChange property, just set the value of field2 in the query your are using for your DBGrid.

Write an onChange event for your DBGrid. Try the example found at this PAQ:

Or, as suggested in the same PAQ, try using the OnColExit event and enter there the code for updating the dataset.

Another ideea would be to add all Fields of the Query or table that you use as DataSource. (Click on table and in Object  TreeView, select the query you use, right-click on the Fields and pick Add All Fields) And use the field's event OnSetText... or OnChange, or OnValidate... Try them all, at least one of them should work
I did not try them myself... so good luck. They all seem to do what you need. So in case of a change in a certain record field... do something... change the other field that you want to change.

regards
