change dbcurrency value after comparing tables

I have a dbcurrency that gets data from a table (table1) in database.
I need to check this value against another table value (table2) after the table1 opens.
So when the table1 opens  if the table2 value is bigger than table1 I display a
message notifying user of the sum difference and ask to change the dbcurrency value to that of
table2 (i do not want to update table1 with new value just change the currencyedit value).

Pardon me, but changing the value in the currencyedit will change the value in table1.

However, You would do this in the Table2.OnAfterOpen event.

procedure TForm1.Table2AfterOpen(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
  // only do this check if Table1 is open
  if Table1.Active then
  begin
    if Table1.FieldByName('field1').AsCurrency < Table2.FieldByName('field1').AsCurrency then
    begin
      if (MessageDlg('Table2''s value is > Table1''s value, '+
                               'do you want to modify Table1''s Value?', mtConfirmation,
                               [mbYes, mbNo], 0) = mrYes) then
      begin
        Table1.Edit;
        Table1.FieldByName('field1').AsCurrency = Table2.FieldByName('field1').AsCurrency;
        Table1.Post;
      end;  
    end;
  end;
end;
