Assuming you want to set every other row to be a different color,
how about iterating through the recordset, and determining if it's an even or odd row. Then you can set the background color just for that row.   e.g.

   Dim rst as Recordset
   Dim i as Integer
   For i = 1 To rst.RecordCount
        If (i Mod 2 = 0) Then
           'set the background color
           'I don't have VB on my home system so I don't know
           'the syntax offhand for changing the background prop.
           'of the row
        next i
    End if

I tried to use this code and it change the entire color of the DBGrid background. I need to have diferents row colors depends on a criteria, for instance: All the rows whose CountryCode is "USA" in red and the rest in blue. If you have another solution please let me know ASAP. Thanks one more time for your cooperation.

If you are using the DBGrid that came with VB, you can't really do it - all the rows will be the same color.

If you need different rows in different colors, then you need the DBGrid Pro from Apex Software (www.apexsc.com), which allows you that and much, much more...

You can't change the grid of individual rows. You have to use the MSFlexgrid for that purpose.
