Hi all,

I am having a problem with an SQL Query.

This is the code:

 ADOQuery1.SQL.Add('select * from TheTable where (Make) = "' + (Edit1.Text) + '"');

Now...this wrks fine IF results are found but I get an error if there are no matches found.

How could I modify this so that IF there are no matches found I can do a Showmessage('No Matches Found') or something link this.

Hope you can help!

Thanks

Could you perhaps do a record count on the dataset?
i.e.
if ADOQuery1.RecordCount > 0 then do
  begin
etc

Try this way:

ADOQuery1.SQL.Add('select * from TheTable where (Make) = "' + (Edit1.Text) + '"');
ADOQuery1.Open;
if ADOQuery1.EOF  then  
  begin
  Showmessage('No Matches Found') ;
  Exit;
end;
