Can you tell me what I am doing wrong.
I am trying to check a grid with only one Row and checking each coloum or(sel) in that row to see if the coloum or(sel) is empty or has text.
This is some of my code.

W = 1
  Grid2.Row = 0
             For T = 0 To NoCols - 1
             Grid2.Col = T
            If Grid2.Text = "" Then
            'If Len(Grid2.Text) = 0 Then
            W = 0
           
            End If
    Next T

in your program, as long as there is 1 cell with text = "", W will be set to zero, instead use the following code:

W = 0
Grid2.Row = 0
For T = 0 To NoCols - 1
  Grid2.Col = T
  If Grid2.Text <> "" Then
    W = 1
  End If
Next T

also, if you are using MS flexgrid, the first row will be the columnheader, not the first row containing data.

I tried this code and it always returns W as 0.  I want to check a grid with one Row and each coloumn or is it sel, of that Row to see if any of the coloumns or sels have no text.  
If ALL coloumns or sels have text then W = 0
Else W = 1.

Try this code. It should work. I didn't test it.
With msFlexGrid
For i = 0 To .Rows - 1
    For j = 0 To .Cols - 1
       If .TextMatrix(i, j) = "" Then
          .TextMatrix(i, j) = "0"
       Else
          .TextMatrix(i, j) = "1"
       End If
    Next
Next
end with

Dim RowHasAColEmpty as Boolean
Dim lngRow as Long
Dim lngCol as Long

Dim lngRow = 3 ' Or any other row you want

With MSFlexGrid1
  For lngCol = 0 To .Cols - 1
    If Len(.TextMatrix (lngRow, lngCol)) = 0 _
    Then
      RowHasAColEmpty = True
      Exit For
    End If
  Next lngIndex
End With

If RowHasAColEmpty _
Then
  ' Do Your Processing here
End If
