Add a dbgrid and a data control to your form. Set the dbgrid's .DataMode property to BOUND and it's .DataSource property to DATA1 (the name of your data control.)

Set the Data1.Database to the name of your database, and the Data1.Recordsource to an sql statement that does a join of the two tables you want.

For example, if you have a table of book authors and a table of
book titles, the common field between the two table being author, your sql statement would look something like this...

"SELECT * FROM AUTHORS, TITLES WHERE TITLES.AUTHOR_NAME = AUTHOR.NAME"

When you refresh your data control, the results should show up in your grid.
