Put this in teh DBGrid's OnKeyDown event.

if ((Shift = [ssCtrl]) and (Key = VK_DELETE)) then
 begin
  key := 0;
  showmessage('Please use teh menu to delete records!);
 end;

You could put this code on the Form's OnKeyDown event, but I would suggest it.  each time teh user pressed a key (any key) it woudl have to check for this - which could slow your program down.  If your stuck on doing it this way, use ---  "and (ActiveControl is TDBGrid)"

Any questions, please add a comment.

Good Luck!  Jay
