Using Visual FoxPro 6.0, can we enter data into grids?

Hi,

If there are 5 columns in a grid for employee records, the name and identity no. columns are already retrieved from the database. Can I enter data into the rest of the 3 columns eg. gender, name of spouse and age and save the whole record into the database? This will mean that I do not need to provide additional input boxes for data entry.

If yes, please advise on how to handle this. Is this already provided when a grid is used or is programming required to handle this?

Thank you.

Hi, wmlim.

I know that it's a bit late, and you've probably already figured it out.  However, just in case you haven't, I'll respond here.  If you have already figured it out, then you may want to delete this question.

#Questions
1. Does the user want to edit multiple records (like in a grid)?

If so, then you could create a grid with five columns and have the left two columns (name and identity no.) disabled and in italics.  This way, users would know that they couldn't edit those values.  You can still leave the other three columns enabled and editable.

2. Does the user want to edit one record (in full screen) mode with a grid available for easy searching?

This type is the one that my own users prefer... actually they prefer editing both ways.

Bye. -e2
