Hi
VB3 and VB4 have a limit to the number of records that are displayed in a grid control
You have hit the limit that is why you are getting that error .
Have you tried the gris controls that come with VB5 or VB6 i think Microsoft has exstended the capacity of the grid control to accept more records .
Also maybe se if there are any sheridan grid controls you could replace the standard one with .
Also look on the net say at Microsoft or try these few sites i have listed below to see if you can't pick up some 3 rd party grid controls that can handle your amount.
Web Site for Vb stuff nb nb nb

Web Site for Trial versions on different software

Extra Shareware Dll Files
http://www.softseek.com/Programming/DLLs_and_Libraries/
Mpeg3 files
http:/layer3.mircx.com
Internet Address for Dll Files

Or you may have to just limit the control to displaying say only 1500 records (which would be the latest in the database)

Hope it helps a little
Good Luck
Craig
