sorry... i just found the solution.
after i add in this statement, the grid can display all the records from database.

.CursorLocation = adUseClient

Now online to delete this question.  Since you post a comment already, how about you tell me how to set the caption of the DataGrid? The column header.  Because it is follow the table fields name when display.

yongyih,

In the SQL you use to return the dataset redefine the headings using something like

SELECT lastname AS [Surname],
       firstname AS [Christian Name]
FROM   tblname

for example
