I believe that You need a data control to use the dbGrid.
The dataSource property is not available at run time. It has to be set at design time.

For your case, you use the datacontrol for just use the dbgrid. (still use the DAO for other purpose).


    Set Mydb = OpenDatabase("c:\db\Mydb.mdb")
    Set Myset = Mydb.OpenRecordset("Table1", vbOpenTable)
    Set data1.RecordSet = Myset
    data1.Refresh

Hope it helped

Hi Dalin,

Thank you.

Do you mean I can not use any bound control without Data control?
The Data control is not avalable in VB5 trial versiion which is what I am using :-)

Not true you do not need a data control with your grid. And Microsoft does not say this. You just have to take control off the grid update yourself. Read up on unbound grids in the online books for vb 5.0. Read up on UnboundAddData, UnboundDeleteRow,UnboundReadData, UnboundWriteData. This takes a lot more work of course than a bound grid. But it can be done and gives you a lot more control and performance.
