"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

You can simply search the Ttable or Tquery Component to which the dbgrid is connected to.

Example:
Put a Dbgrid, TTable and a TDatasource on your form.
Connect  the dbgrid1 to the Datasource1 (dbgrid.datasource -property)
Connect the Datasource1 to Table1 (datasource.dataset-property)

Set TTable-databasename  and TTable-TabelName, and set
active to true.
Now put a Tedit control on the form and double-click it:
Then insert the folowwing  code:


procedure TForm1.Edit1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
 Ttable1.Locate('FieldName',Edit1.Text,[]);
end;

If the Table is indexed you can also use findKey:

 Ttable1.FindKey([edit1.Text]);
