I would like to use a DBGrid Control in a MFC dialog box application but I don't know how to make connection with a database, that is to bound data in columms of DBGrid. When this control is used in VB, it needs a Data control. The Data control can connect with database then DBGrid can find data source. However, Data Control is belong to VB. I can't find it when I insert an ActiveX control. Anyone can tell me how to do in MFC?

Use the Microsoft Remote Data Control instead.

Please refer MDIBIND example come with MSVC++ CD.

Create a RDC(Remote Data Control) in a modeless dialog. Create a datasource thru ODBC32 and connect this data source to the RDC. Now create your DBGrid and say the source is this RDC. Remember, do in a modeless dialog. Modal dialog behaviour is unpredictable.

ODBC data source -> RDC -> DBGrid.

You can create these controls from 'Insert' menu item under 'Project' in MSVC++.
