Yes you can do that, by setting the datagrid's datasource with ADO recordset.

Like this:
---
Dim rs1 As Recordset

':
'your connection already opened..
':

Set rs1 = New recordset
rs1.Open "Select * from table1",Conn1,adOpenKeySet, adLockOptimistic

Set datagrid1.datasource = rs1

---
And hope you'd need to use Client-side cursor location to your connection for achieving the same.

Why you wish to use DBGrid, DataGrid is better to use, since it uses ADO, which is going to be supported by MS anymore. And it is flexible to do things.

What do you mean by synchronize data? Well, if one user is deleting the record, the other user could get the info, when you do a requery on the recordset. Or, if you open the recordset also, you should be able to get the changed reflected. Also have a look at the different cursortypes, adOpenKeySet, adOpenDynamic and adOpenStatic, which could also help you understand. Anyway for SQL Server, we use adOpenKeySet normally.

Hope that helps.
