look at this line SubItems.Add(FloatToStr(Bumpri));

I need to add subitems based on the caption.
if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Ft Bumper')  then
      sum:= Bumpri * LaborX;
    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I  Lt Head Light')  then
      sum:= rilftheadlilght * LaborX;
    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Hood')  then
      sum:=  rihood *   laborx ;<<<<<<<
How can i know which caption was used to do the math so I know which On to insert into the listview.
var
Hale,Dent: Boolean;
 rihood, rilftheadlilght, bumpri: Double;
  Sum, laborx: Double;
  ListItem: TListItem;
begin
  Dent:= datamodule1.AQcustomerinfo.FieldByName('DentWork').AsBoolean;
  Hale:= Datamodule1.AQcustomerinfo.FieldByName('HaleWork').AsBoolean;
 
    If Copy(Label1.Caption,1,5) = 'R & I' Then
    begin
      Bumpri:= 1.5;
      rilftheadlilght:= 1.3;
      rihood:= 1.2;
      Laborx:= StrToFloat(frmsetup.Edit5.text);
    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Ft Bumper')  then
      sum:= Bumpri * LaborX;
    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I  Lt Head Light')  then
      sum:= rilftheadlilght * LaborX;
    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Hood')  then
      sum:=  rihood *   laborx ;
    begin
    ListItem := form1.ListView1.Items.Add;
     with ListItem do
     begin
     Caption := Datamodule1.AQGlobalID.fieldbyname('GlobalID').AsString;// first column
     SubItems.Add(Form1.Label1.Caption);
     SubItems.Add(FloatToStr(Bumpri));
     SubItems.Add('');
     SubItems.Add('');
     SubItems.Add('');
     SubItems.Add('');
     SubItems.Add(floattostr(sum)) ;
     
     end;
    end;
      end
      else
    if  Dent = True then
  begin
  frmDentRepair.Label3.Caption:= 'Operations:  '+ Form1.Label1.Caption;
  frmDentRepair.ShowModal;
  End
  else
   if Hale = True then
   begin
   frmDentRepair.Label3.Caption:= 'Operations:  '+ Form1.Label1.Caption;
   frmHale.ShowModal;
   end
 
 end;

How about setting an integer variable to a differnt value for each of the captions you are testing and then using that in a Case statement to determine what to do?

    if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Ft Bumper')  
    then begin
      sum:= Bumpri * LaborX;
      ActionNdx := 0;
    end
    else begin
      if (label1.Caption = 'R & I  Lt Head Light')  
      then begin
        sum:= rilftheadlilght * LaborX;
        ActionNdx := 0;
      end
      else begin
        if (label1.Caption = 'R & I Hood')  
        then begin
          sum:=  rihood *   laborx ;
          ActionNdx := 0;
        end
        else begin
          rasie Exception.Create("We should never get here!");
        end; {if}
      end; {if}
    end; {if}
  
    case ActionNdx of
      0 : begin
          end;
      0 : begin
          end;
      0 : begin
          end;
     else begin
          end;
    end; {case]
