Go Up to Displaying, Converting, and Accessing Field Values

The most general method for accessing the value of a field is to use Variants with the FieldValues property. For example, the following statement puts the value of an edit box into the CustNo field in the Customers table:


Customers.FieldValues['CustNo'] := Edit2.Text;


Customers->FieldValues["CustNo"] = Edit2->Text;

Because the FieldValues property is of type Variant, it automatically converts other datatypes into a Variant value.
