Hi asi,

to know the cell coördinats :

do you just want to select the cell? Here is an example :
                   (Look at the header of the form. Think the way of getting the row and col selected is
                   interesting) If I'm wrong, please specify the problem.

                   try it this way:

                   unit unit1;

                   interface

                   uses
                     SysUtils, WinTypes, WinProcs, Messages, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
                     Forms, Dialogs, DB, DBTables, Grids, DBGrids;

                   type
                     TForm1 = class(TForm)
                       DBGrid1: TDBGrid;
                       DataSource1: TDataSource;
                       Table1: TTable;
                       procedure DBGrid1ColEnter(Sender: TObject);
                       procedure DataSource1DataChange(Sender: TObject; Field: TField);
                       procedure DBGrid1DrawDataCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
                       Field: TField; State: TGridDrawState);
                     private
                       { Private declarations }

                     public
                       { Public declarations }
                       procedure ShowRowCol;
                     end;
                     THack = class(TDBGrid);

                   var
                     Form1: TForm1;

                   implementation

                   {$R *.DFM}

                   procedure TForm1.ShowRowCol;
                   begin
                     caption := 'Row: ' + IntToStr(THack(DBGrid1).row) + ' ' + 'Col: ' +
                   IntToStr(THack(DBGrid1).col);
                   end;

                   procedure TForm1.DBGrid1ColEnter(Sender: TObject);
                   begin
                     ShowRowCol;
                   end;

                   procedure TForm1.DataSource1DataChange(Sender: TObject; Field: TField);
                   begin
                     if (Sender as TDataSource).State = dsBrowse then ShowRowCol;

                   end;
                   Procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DrawDataCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
                     Field: TField; State: TGridDrawState);
                   begin
                      If gdFocused in State then
                       with (Sender as TDBGrid).Canvas do begin
                       Brush.Color := clRed;
                       FillRect(Rect);
                       TextOut(Rect.Left, Rect.Top, Field.AsString);
                       end;
                   end;

                   end.

When a user moves the scrollbar, it doesn't says that the active cell changes : so you need to find the movement event another way. Like pushing the enter or tab, or arrow keys.
