Hi roosiedb,

what about this? : Table1.Field[4].index:=0 (this will move it to column 0 in the DBGrid)

Regards, Zif.

Sorry, that won't work (maybe because I am using Delphi 3.0 ???).
Please help me with this...

Sorry, your answer really did not work. That was because you forgot the S in fieldS...

DBGrid1.Fields[0].Index := 2;

And I did not see the difference myself. When I copied and pasted your answer into my Delphi-application, it did not work at all. That's why I rejected your answer.
Now that you've found the error in your answer, I have fixed my problem.
Next time: watch your spelling please... I am a beginning Delphi-programmer and I don't know how to spell all these Delphi-terms myself yet, because I did not use this one before... Anyway, thank you very much for helping. I will increase and grade the answer now. Bye. J.v.Barchum.

no problem...  I'll try to do my best with the syntaxes. But after all E-E is intended to communicate with each other. So, these errors aren't a world-crime... except the time you lose with it... thanks! c.u. ZiF.
