I want to create a modified version of the dbgrid control.  All I am wanting to do is add a setdata function to it.  How do I keep all the pre-exisiting functionality available in my new control? ex: mydbgrid1.textmatrix(x,y) - This is not available for somereason. In fact, nothing is.

Create a new ActiveX control.  Add the DBGrid to the new control.  In the resize event on the control make the grid equal to the size of the control.  Then click on add-ins and click on ActiveX control interface wizard.  Click next a couple of times until you get to the step called Set Mapping the select everything in the left column and choose the DBGrid from the combo box on the right.  Click next anything that is still in the left column click back and select those and then select usercontrol from the combobox on the right.  Click next until you get to the end and then click finish.
This should give you everything now you just have to add what you want.
