My position is that I have a DBGRID with all sorts of columns and information in it.  

Lets say the DBGRID has an empty column, ie. no data in that column.

How do I figure this out (through code) and delete the column, or at least hide it?

Thanks.

here is how:
this code finds you the contents of a cell in a DBGrid control

Dim igColumn As Integer
Dim igRow As Integer
Dim vargBookmark As Variant
 
      Private Sub DBGrid1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, _
                                  X As Single, Y As Single)
         igColumn = DBGrid1.ColContaining(X)   'Set the Cell Column number
         igRow = DBGrid1.RowContaining(Y)      'Set the Cell Row number
 
         vargBookmark = DBGrid1.RowBookmark(igRow) 'Set Bookmark Value
 
         'Show the contents of the cell in a textbox
         Text1.Text = DBGrid1.Columns(igColumn).CellValue(vargBookmark)

after you get the Text1.Text, set the CurrentCellVisible property of the DBGrid control.

let me know if this helps,
