How do I get Data into the MSFlexGrid and how do I edit the data (typing)? I have not managed to translate the Tips and Tricks article by Frank Sommer in Visual Basic into C++.

Are you using a data-bound grid?

Commented:
I'm not sure what "data-bound" means, but I want to use the numbers beeing put into the grid via either the keyboard or cut and past, for further processing in my program.

Commented:
The MSFlexGrid does not accept direct keyboard input into its cells.
The data-bound grid is similar to the MSFlexGrid, but will accept keyboard input.  It has more of a look like an Excel spreadsheet.  If you take a look at DBGrid in the help files you should find something that will go into detail.
If you want to use the MSFlexGrid, then the MS recommended way to enter data is to open an "input" box when a cell on the grid is selected.  Obviously this is not very user friendly, and is time consuming.  I think you would be better off with the DBGrid.

If you have any questions let me know.
