How to Look up data with DBGRID

If I have a table with 2 fields, ID and NAME, how can I type the ID in the first column of the DBGRID and have the name shown automatically in the second column?

You mean you need a source of a real time request?
(like if a user types 123 in the first row, the second row imediatly displays the corresponding name?)

If you use DBGrid, you can bind it to a DataControl that is connected with your database, and then you'll have both fields up, all the time...

If this is not what you want, I'd rather use a Textbox for the input, and then searched through the DB, and brought up the right row, containing the match.

What is it exactly you want to achieve with your program?

Bookmark the current row
Search the grid for the ID using .FindFirst
Get the name from the row you found and put it to the bookmarked row.
Set the bookmarked row to be the current one

Dim Book as Variant
Dim Text as string
Book = Data1.Recordset.bookmark
Text = Data1.Recordset("ID")
Data1.Recordset.FindFirst "ID=" & Text
Text = Data1.recordset("Name")
Data1.BookMark=Book
Data1.Recordset("NAME") = Text

Hi Fury,

Meeting for the first time...i am new to the ring...

For your kind of programming i use sheridan grid...Add item...
method...At the input of a cell in dbGrid...I check into the
actual table....and if it exists...i display it from the table..
add it to the cell...and. ..then refreshed the dbGrid....this
way i can check ....

The another way of doing is i am attaching an Drop-Down combo
to the column of a Sheridan dbGrid...avoiding the display of
the name just to the right column of first column...

Please tell me further...if you want more explanation...

Awaiting to hear from you soon...

Thanks..

dim dbDatabase as Database
dim rsRecordset as Recordset

dbDatabase = dbEngine.WorkSpaces(0).OpenDatabase("Database")
rsRecordset = dbDatabase.OpenRecordSet("Table")

Now...In the cell event of a sheridan data grid....

rsRecordset.Seek "=", ssdbGrid.Columns(0).Text
If Not NoMatch...

   ssdbGrid.Columns(1).Text = rsRecordset!Name
End If

Please give your feedback...
