Hi experts, I feel empty and searching with google was too long without a result I understood.

Perhaps you can help me.

My Problem:

I habe an ADOTable with the Fields 'ID(unique)', 'Date', 'Title', 'Comment', 'Account' and 'amount'.
In a DB Grid I want to complete with one more column named 'balance'. It's no problem, to add this calculation for every row, but then I only get the sum of this row. I would like to get a cumulative result. And if I will later add an entry for an earlier date, all balance should be autoupdtaed like in Excel.

i.e.

beginning balance := 1000


Date                    |  Title  |...  amount ... |  balance

01.01.2014          |Test1  | .... 100,00  |  1100
05.01.2014          |Test2  | .... -50,00  |   1050
05.02.2014          |Test3  | .... -100,00  | 900
05.02.2014          |Test4  | .... -200,00  |  700
05.03.2014          |Test5  | .... -800,00  |  -100

and so on...

Have you some code to rescue me ?

Thanks, Tom

If you want to show calculated field - I can suggest this:
var
  fStartAmount: Double;
begin
  fStartAmount := 1000;    //
  //auto calc field Balance
  ADODataSet1.Close;
  ADODataSet1.CommandText :=
    'select Id, "Date", Title, Comment,Account,amount, :pStartBalance + '+
    '(select sum(tbl2.amount) from Tabel1 as tbl2 where tbl2."Date"<=Tabel1."Date" '+
    'and tbl2.Id<=Tabel1.Id) as Balance '+
    'from Tabel1 order by "Date", Id';
  ADODataSet1.ParamCheck := True;
  ADODataSet1.Parameters.ParamByName('pStartBalance').Value := fStartAmount;
  ADODataSet1.Open;

Open in new window

.. do not use AdoTable but AdoDataset. This way you can do make calculated field in sql statement. I assume that date is sorted as Id too.


...or you can use some memory dataset which will load original dataset and additional dataset Balance can be calculated in while loop.

Thank you very much :) You freed me from hamster wheel and rescued my weekend.

... but spoke to soon :(

The solution is working fine, as long as I don't append data (with higher id) before earlier entries. Then the result is like this:

StartAmount -1000

ID   |  Date           Comment   Amount    Balance

103  |24.02.2014   | Test1   |   -500      |   -1500
76    |12.03.2014   | Test2   |   -100      |   -1100  <<< !!
104  |13.03.2014   | Test3   |   +2000   |      400  
77    |15.03.2014   | Test4   |   -600      |   -1700  <<< !!
101  |15.03.2014   | Test5   |   +600     |   -1100
