Problem with simple ADOQuery

Last Modified: 2020-12-16
I have a problem reading data from a query. the code below always throws an exception after assigning to v the Variant column from the result of the query ? the number of records found is 18. The query selects data on the basis of the column named 'Variant' so why does the Exception handler give the following message:

:0212288C L"ADOQuery1: Field 'Variant' not found"
I get the same error trying to get the values of any other columns in the result from the query.
I am using Embarcadero C++ Builder XE10.1 update 2 and the database is Microsoft SQL Server version 12.0.5223.6

void __fastcall TForm1::Button3Click(TObject *Sender)
 UnicodeString u,v;
  ADOQuery1->Prepared = false;
  u.sprintf(L"Select * from Operations where Variant = 'VFLS3B2'");
  ADOQuery1->Prepared = true;
   v = ADOQuery1->FieldByName(L"Variant")->AsString.Trim();
 catch(Exception &e)
        u = e.Message;
