Hi there,

I got a TClientDataSet, and I want to add another column to the table.

I tried doing this

fDB : TClientDataSet;
{ .. }
fDB.Close;
fDB.FieldDefs.Add('TypeResult', ftMemo, 0, false);
fDB.CreateDataSet;

But it blows away all my current data....

How can I add another column to the dataset without losing all the current info?

fDB.Close
clears all data

if the data comes from a query you can add it by changing the query with an extra column or a calculated field

if you manually added the data
create a new clientdataset with the extra column and copy the data from the old dataset to the new

Yea that is what I have had to do.
Create a new TClientDataSet and move the data over.
