Well, that's normal. If you push the insert button, the record will be put before the record which is selected. Why do you want to go to the last line? If you really want to do that you can do this by using a button and in that click-event call Table1.Append.

Well, if you really want that whenever user clicks on the insert button the dbgrid goes to the last line. You can use this little piece of code. Use the BeforeInsert event of TTable and put procedure Last in it.

What happens? Before Table1.Insert is called this event (BeforeInsert) will be called and then the table pointer will be moved to the last record. After this the Insert will be called, but because of the fact that the last line is selected, this insert will act like an append.

procedure TForm1.Table1BeforeInsert(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
 Table1.Last;
end;

Have fun,
