I'm using True DBGrid 5.0 with ISG data control for ADO.  Created an ADO 1.5 redordset from a query joining two SQL Server 6.0 tables in VB5 code. I set the TDBGrid.Recordset property = to myquery.  But how do I get the columns to be reflected in the grid?  Using the properies interface, can't seem to set the columns to aanything but the databse/table set on the datasource proterties tab.  Thanks for any tips.

You can write the field name in the DataField textbox in the Columns tab.
Right click grid, click Columns Tab, type in the name of the field in the DataField box. The Grid control doesn't have to see the fields at design-time, it doesn't check if they exist. If at run-time one field won't be there it will resume next without error.
Hope this was what you were looking for!
