MSSQL field not seen when trying to populate TStringGrid

I am populating a TStringGrid with a single row of data from an MS SQL table. It finds the row and gets stuck when looking at a certain field. Delphi claims it does not exist when I run the app.

Below is the code:
procedure TfrmStudentOrders.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var
intRow : Integer;
begin
  if Length(frmNewStudentSelect.EditStudentID.Text) > 0 then
  begin
  //If student exists, i'll do all this
    QuerySelectOrders.SQL.Clear;
    QuerySelectOrders.SQL.Add('SELECT * FROM order_details_tbl WHERE student_id = '''+frmNewStudentSelect.EditStudentID.Text+'''');
    QuerySelectOrders.Open;
    StringGridOrders.RowCount := QuerySelectOrders.RecordCount + 1;
    intRow := 1;
    while not QuerySelectOrders.EoF do
    begin
      StringGridOrders.Cells[0,intRow] := QuerySelectOrders.FieldByName('order_id').AsString;
      StringGridOrders.Cells[1,intRow] := QueryselectOrders.FieldByName('date_in').AsString;
      StringGridOrders.Cells[2,intRow] := QueryselectOrders.FieldByName('due_out').AsString;
      StringGridOrders.Cells[3,intRow] := QuerySelectOrders.FieldByName('build_number').AsString;
      StringGridOrders.Cells[4,intRow] := QuerySelectOrders.FieldByName('sherlock_number').AsString;
      StringGridOrders.Cells[5,intRow] := QuerySelectOrders.FieldByName('yellow_number').AsString;
      QuerySelectOrders.Next;
      inc(intRow);
    end
  end
  else
etc...


It claims "build_number" does not exist, and also "yellow_number" and "sherlock_number" do not contain any information, although all 3 do contain data.

They are nvarchar fields.

Any ideas?

Are You using BDE?
BDE has problems with nvarchar fields.
I'm no sure if it was ever repaired.
use varchar fields if possible.
If not switch to ADO
