I am using the common way used in VB: Put an edit box on the application and move this box to whereever I want to edit.
The problem is I do not know how to unite the unit for the editbox's position. The unit for both editbox and Grid should be same. Because of this problem, I can not move the Editbox to the proper position. Any help is appreciated.

I believe you are speaking of the coordinates that the grid is using versus the coordinates used to place your edit control.  If this is the case then this should fix your problem:

The grid's GetCellHeight(), GetCellWidth(), GetCellTop() and GetCellLeft() functions all return values in a unit called twips.  Since your edit control will most likely be placed (via CWnd::MoveWindow or equivalent) using pixels for a unit.  Your solution is to convert twips to pixels.  There are 1440 pixels per inch so the conversion is simple:

// Get a pointer to the grid
CMSFlexGrid* pGrid = (CMSFlexGrid*)GetDlgItem(IDC_MSFLEXGRID1);
ASSERT(pGrid);

// Get a pointer to the edit control
CEdit* pEdit = (CEdit*)GetDlgItem(IDC_EDIT);
ASSERT(pEdit);

// Get the cell diminesions.
// Grid always returns twips. Convert twips to pixels.
long nTwipsPerPixelX = 1440 / pGrid->GetWindowDC()->GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSX);
long nTwipsPerPixelY = 1440 / pGrid->GetWindowDC()->GetDeviceCaps(LOGPIXELSY);

long nHeight  = pGrid->GetCellHeight() / nTwipsPerPixelY;
long nWidth   = pGrid->GetCellWidth()  / nTwipsPerPixelX;
long nTop     = pGrid->GetCellTop()  / nTwipsPerPixelY;
long nLeft    = pGrid->GetCellLeft() / nTwipsPerPixelX;

// Size and move the edit control over the cell.
CRect rect;
pGrid->GetWindowRect(&rect);
ScreenToClient(&rect);
pEdit->MoveWindow(nLeft + rect.left, nTop + rect.top, nWidth, nHeight, TRUE);

pEdit->ShowWindow( SW_SHOW );

"There are 1440 pixels per inch so the conversion is simple:"

Make that 1440 twips per inch.
