When the button is pressed I want to put a Combo Box over
the cell where the button is. I need to know how to get the
left and top of the cell that the button is on to position
the combo box. The only left and top I can find is for the
column not the cell.

The data grid does'nt have a property for leftcell or something like it.  The only way i found for that is the property RowHeight and colwidth .

With the top and left of the grid you can now calculate the position of the cell on the screen and then place your combo box.

Good Answer but how do I know which of the visible cells is
the one that was pressed. The row property tells me which
row within the record set is current but not that that row
is in the 5'th visible cell.
