name them consecutively like this edtCurr1, edtCurr2, ..edtCurr10, and
use the FindComponent method like this:

var
  i: Integer;
  c: Extended;
  e: TEdit;
begin
  c := 0.0;
  for i := 1 to 3 do
  begin
    e := TEdit(FindComponent('edtCurr'+ IntToStr(i)));
    c := StrToFloat(e.Text) + c;
  end;
  Edit4.Text := FloatToStr(c);
end;

It seems that when the value of the currencyedit is 0,00 €
then the exception is raised...

eddie...I have made this work by changing the zeroempty thinggie...
Is there a way to update the currency13 (the one that sums up)
when onchange of the currencyedits occur without having to write
every single onchange event of each curredit??

You can set them all to the same OnChange event to do the computation.

Or if you have other code in the Onchange events, write a separate method to do the change and
call it from each of them.

if you have one OnChange event, set the OnChange event for ALL your edits to the same
event handler in th eObject Inspector, use the dropdown and select the correct handler.
