I assume that DBGrid2 is unbound?

Do you have the second grid bound to anything? If you don't (and you will have to forgive me as I don't use DBGrid much) can you actually store records in it? If so then surely all you need to do is something like:

For i= 0 to Data1.Recordset.Fields.Count - 1
  DbGrid2.Somepropertyorother = Data1.Recordset.Fields(i).Value
Next

       For j = 0 To fromgrid.Cols - 1
        fromgrid.Col = j
        togrid.Col = j
        togrid.Text = fromgrid.Text
        Next

Other than a loop, not really. You are restricted to the capabilities of the objects, the DBGrid is only representing the underlying recordset in some fashion. If you were using the DataGrid with the ADO data control you could use the .GetString or .GetArray function to quickly grab a string from the record but the DAO based Data control doesn't have this as far as I know.

Oops,This is the one

        fromgrid.Row = ur choice(Integer-Valid row no)
        togrid.Row = urchoice(Integer-Valid row no)
        For j = 0 To fromgrid.Cols - 1
        fromgrid.Col = j
        togrid.Col = j
        togrid.Text = fromgrid.Text
        Next

I now. I had to build my database some other way. I need to
query te records and let the database "Access" copy them to
a temp Rec.Set. I think.

That would work, especially if you have unique identifiers for the rows, you could easily build a select into statement to create the temporary table and then bind the second grid to this table. You will still have to loop through the selected rows in grid 1 if there are multiple rows selected.
