How can I do the following ....
I have two tables that are related as such: Table1 and Table2 have a
one-to-many relationship .... ie. Table2 can only be saved once there exists
an associated record in Table1.
I want to be able to capture records within a dbgrid for table2 (not with
direct editing the grid though ... but with selecting from dblookupcombo
boxes and then
populating a row). At this point in time though ...there is no record saved
in table 1 yet.
How do I populate the dbgrid without an active datasource? And how do I
eventually save the dbgrid records to the database (when the values
displayed in the
grid is not the values I want saved??? I want their keys saved instead?)
PS. I also want to use that same dbgrid for viewing the data later on and
maybe adding another record to table 2?
Please, any help will be appreciated.
