Quick question!

I am a student who is trying to finish a final project, but I am incredibly stuck at one seemingly simple step. I have a number of text boxes on a tabbed form that will have information typed in by the user. I am then supposed to have the user click on a command to add the information to a MSFlexGrid. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this. I have tried AddItem to no avail : MSFlexGrid1.AddItem txtStateTaxRate for example. Any suggestions??

I had always use MSFlexGrid bounded. So add your data to your recordset and refresh your grid.

MSFlexGrid1.AddItem txtStateTaxRate.Text

Also make sure you have
Option Explicit
as the first line of your code, before anything.  This will prevent you from using unDimmed variables.  If the program cannot find txtStateTaxRate, it will tell you.
Works for me

MSFlexGrid1.AddItem "Wayne"
MSFlexGrid1.AddItem Text1

Dim GridRow
Dim RowCount
 GridRow = 0
 MSFlexGrid1.Rows = GridRow + 1
 MSFlexGrid1.Row = GridRow
 MSFlexGrid1.Col = 0
 MSFlexGrid1.Text = txtStateTaxRate
 MSFlexGrid1.Col = 1
 MSFlexGrid1.Text = txtNextData
an afterthought...
If you use multiple forms you have to
MsFlexGrid1.AddItem FormWhatever.txtStateTaxRate
Try this way

Private Sub MsFlexGrid1_Click ()
   MSHFlexGrid1.Additem 'adds a row
  ' Put text in third row, third column.
   MSHFlexGrid1.Col = 2
   MSHFlexGrid1.Row = 2
   MSHFlexGrid1.Text = "There"
End Sub

also u can use

MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(1, 1) ="blah"

here it'll add blah, to row=1 col=1

First you have to add a row using
Additem method, then use either
TextMatrix(row,col) or set the row and col first and then use the Text method

hope this helps.
