You need to place controls (textbox, combo, ...) over the grid to make it editable. See this article: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q241/3/55.ASP

The easiest solution, which also seems to be used most frequently, is to create one textbox and put it on the same form as the MSFlexgrid control, set the visible property to FALSE. Now whenever a user clicks on a cell you move the textbox to the position of that cell, and then set the textbox's visible property to TRUE. This will make it appear as the grid control is editable.

Instead of using Flex grid , you can use Data Grid to make editable grid control. You can use bound & unbound mode for datagrid, also have property for row. allowdelte, allowupdate, allowinsert new row. It will hel you.
