Let's assume for the moment you have an ADO recordset. The included code gives you an example of how to connect a MSHflexgrid to an ADO recordset.
 
'First I set the fixed columns on my grid so the new
'data initially won't have a column of grayed out data
flxPerfTable.FixedCols = 0

'flxPerfTable - name of the MSHflexgrid
'rstPerf      - name of an ADO recordset containing
'               the desired data.
'
'next I use the set function of the flexgrid to assign
'a clone of a recordset to the grid. This loads the grid
'with the data.
'Basically you create a copy of the reference
'to the recordset.
Set flxPerfTable.DataSource = rstPerf.Clone

'Alternatively you can sometimes use
set flxPerfTable.DataSource = rstPerf

'In my code I have a column of record ID numbers that I
'want to be shaded gray so I reset the fixed columns to 1
flxPerfTable.FixedCols = 1


While this may get the data displayed in the grid you may want to do some additional formatting of column widths etc. to make sure the data can be viewed by your users in a way that makes sense.  Watch for data formatting as the flexgrid primarily handles text, so some data looks goofy when shown in the grid. In these cases you may need to modify the formatting of the data in the ADO prior to display. Experiment a bit.

Now if you haven't created an ADO recordset yet, you will need to do this as well before running the code above.
