Problem when scrolling a Datagrid with arrow keys

I have a Datagrid populated from a ADO Data Control. My datagrid can show about 5 records from the recordset. When the user selects a record from the datagrid I fill text boxes with additional data from the chosen record. When ever you scroll (arrow) to the next record in the Datagrid the text boxes are updated with that records info. If I use the scroll bar and expose a row down the list and then mouse onto the row it works OK. I use RowColChange and/or SelChange to fire the query for the text boxes.
This works great until you try and scroll up or down to the next record when it is not showing in the datagrid. The events do not appear to fire when arrowing to the next record when not shown.
I have the same problem with an MSFlexgrid with out a Data Control.
Help.

You might be better off firing the additional query to fill the text boxes from the ADODC1_MoveComplete event rather than the rowcolchange, this should fire whenever the record is moved in the underlying recordset and doesn't require that the datagrid has retrieved the row yet.

I had tried the MoveComplete event unsuccessfully and your last sentence explains why. I am referencing a datagrid column in my query to fetch the PK field to populate the rest of my text boxes. I should be referencing the Data Controls current record instead.

I do not know how to do that!

I have refernced the Data Control and it works as advertised.
varPKNumber = adodc1.Recordset!PKNumber

Tim thanks for the help.
