hi, whats the idea and a sample of code so i can insert an image into my adotable, in the same cell as some text.

Meaning

when i select "sale ok" and it inserts my data into the table2, i want to add a small logo/picture next the the text saying "sale ok" and if its not sale i select "bad" and it adds a different image.

is this possible, i really dont want to create another field in the database. If i can help it.

images are stored on the form for displaying

use an imagelist, each image has it's own number
they have to be the same size

with a professional grid, you get a drop down image (like devexpress quantumgrid)
you assign the imagelist to the drop down
then just set the right value for the right image

with dbgrid, it's custom draw

Firts drop and ImageList on your form and add your images to it

First image you add will be for OK so the index is zero
Second image you add will be for Bad, so image index is one

Select the DBGrid1, go to events and double click on OnDrawColumnCell
 Delphi will create the procedure

procedure TForm3.DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
  DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn; State: TGridDrawState);
begin

end;

Add this code to it
procedure TForm3.DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
  DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn; State: TGridDrawState);
var
  Bitmap: TBitmap;
  R: TRect;
  Index : integer;
begin
  Index := -1;
  if LowerCase(Column.Field.AsString) = 'sale ok' then
    Index := 0
  else if LowerCase(Column.Field.AsString) = 'bad' then
    Index := 1;

  if Index >= 0 then
  begin
    //draw image
    Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
    try
      ImageList1.GetBitmap(Index, Bitmap);
      R := Rect;
      R.Right := Rect.Left + ImageList1.Width;
      DBGrid1.Canvas.StretchDraw(R, Bitmap);
    finally
      FreeAndNil(Bitmap);
    end;

    //Add the text
    R := Rect;
    R.Left := Rect.Left + ImageList1.Width;

    DBGrid1.DefaultDrawColumnCell(R, DataCol, Column, State);
  end;
end;
