If you want to use ADO, make sure you use the ADO DataGrid (MSDATGRD.OCX) and ADO Adodc (MSADODC.OCX). They work fine.

Using the ADO DataGrid with the ADO DataControl is very simple.  

Set the Datasource property of the ADO Datagrid to whatever you named your ADO DataControl.  Then use your SQL statement as the Recordsource property of your ADO DataControl.  Refresh the ADO DataControl and that's it.

dgdData.DataSource = adoData
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [Accounts]"
strOrder = " ORDER BY [Account Num]"
adoData.RecordSource = strSQL & strOrder
adoData.Refresh

DBGrid doesn't accept ADO recordset. The only way you can use DBGrid with ADO will be to manually populate the grid control.
