In VB 4.0 what is the best way to work with a dbgrid.
Bound or unbounded?
Does anyone have an example of code where I can relation a form with a textboxes with a dbgrid?

It really depends on the application that you are going to be using the DBGrid for if you are going to be using it for displaying updateable information then you should have it in Bound mode. If you are going to use it to display large number of files that will not be changed then some times unbound mode is best and then just write the code to display the information.

I agree with Jadefire, except that if you have a large recordset, you will have performance degradation with most any data-bound control.

If your app is small, go for it!
