Yes, not very clear.
Typically, you would open your ADOQuery and then assign the value something like this
Edit1.Text := ADOQuery1.FieldByName('Total').AsFloat;

Sorry about that. You need to convert to string.
Edit1.Text := FloatToStr( ADOQuery1.FieldByName('Total').AsFloat);
Edit1.Text := ADOQuery1.FieldByName('Total').AsString;
