The reason for this error is that, at this point, you have not committed the inserts to the database - therefore, there is nothing there to update.

HERE. You are testing for dssEdit state when the new rows are still in dssInsert so nothing happens.

Also note that the OnCalculateField event won't take place until the dataset is being refreshed. I'm pretty sure you can call CalculateFields manually at other times, though.
