What code should I use to set cell text for either a grid control or a DBgrid control, the following does not seem to work:
DbGridName.Columns(1).CellValue ("text")  nor
DbGridName.Columns(1).CellText ("text")

Grid:
Grid1.text = "Data for the current cell"

DBGrid:
DBGrid1.Columns(1).Text = "Text to be displayed in the cell"
DBGrid1.Columns(1).Text = "Data to be contained in the cell"

Yes, got that to work with 'Grid' but an error message says "this property not available" for 'DBGrid', does it need to be the 32-bit version?

umm.... not sure...
What I suggest is to make sure that you have typed (for DBGrid):
   DBGrid1.Columns(1).Text = "whatever"
instead of:
   DBGrid1.Text = "whatever"

where 'Columns' is a collection of the columns in the grid, and the number within the parenthesis is the index of the column.
- DBGrid1.Columns(0) is first column
- DBGrid1.Columns(1) is 2nd column, etc...

btw, I mistyped something in my answer for DBGrid. It should be:
DBGrid1.Columns(1).Text = "Text to be displayed in the cell"
DBGrid1.Columns(1).Value = "Data to be contained in the cell"

sorry... :p

Thanks for your comment. I understand your code, but for some reason the message still appears - "the object does not support this property"
