ClifABB,
Let me give more details of what i am looking for.Suppose you have a task - "Get Beer". so the grid will intially look like
--------------------------------------------------------
Task  Done         Subject     Current Owner   Comments
--------------------------------------------------------
01     NO    +     Get Beer    clifABB         ..........

When you clik on the "+" sign, it should list all the activities
that took place to complete the task.now, the grid should look like

--------------------------------------------------------------
Task  Done         Subject           Current Owner   Comments
---------------------------------------------------------------
01     NO    -     Get Beer          clifABB         ..........
                    ..Assigned to    vmano           ...........

i tried to explain with a very small example. hope you can visualise what i am trying to say.if you still can't get the complete picture, please post a comment and i will answer that.
vmano.

OK, I understand a bit better.

VideoSoft has a control called VSFlex 3.0.  It is a grid bu has outline features as you describe.  There id a demo in the help file which describes how to set the properties to get the outline grid you're looking for.

Videosoft is located at:
  http://www.videosoft.com
and you can download a free demo from their site.

Another control that you might want to look into is the Janus GridEX control:

http://www.janus.com (I think...)

Nice control with nifty features.  Just does DAO and ADO for bound mode, though (try ProtoView DataTable for other bound modes).
