This is a easy one if you know your DataGrids.

I currently have a ADO Data Control 6.0 and a DataGrid Control 6.0 on one of my forms.

I am trying to access the value of a single cell in the Activity_ID field when the cursor is next to it.

The only way I have figured out how to do this so far is through the use of bookmarks as the Initial Query loads I make every row a bookmark.

Ex.  
 For I = 0 To DataGrid1.VisibleRows - 1
   DataGrid1.SelBookmarks.Add (DataGrid1.RowBookmark(I))
 Next I



 I click a Command Button coded as.....
Ex.

Dim intENum

intENum =
DataGrid1.Columns(0).CellValue(DataGrid1.SelBookmarks(I))

Label6.Caption = intENum
 


So, MY QUESTION is,  can you get this value without the use of bookmarks????

Thank you so much for whoever answers this.

This is how you do it

    intENum = adodc1.recordset("Activity_ID").value

If you know for sure that the cell has not been changed then normulap's solution would work, otherwise you can use the following:

intENum = CLng(DataGrid1.Columns.Item("Activity_ID ").Text)
