HI,
Paste you my comment to Spk2000ar for sthe similar question.
1.Set the DefaultDrawing property of your DBGrid to True.
In OnDrawColumnCell event write the following:

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect; DataCol: Integer; Column:
TColumn; State: TGridDrawState);
var OldBrush, OldFont: TColor;
begin
with Sender as TDBGrid do
 with Canvas do
  begin
    OldBrush:=Brush.Color;
     OldFont:=Font.Color;
//here goes your condition for highlighting:
  if (DataSource.DataSet[YourFieldName]=0)
   then
    begin
     if gdSelected in State
      then
       begin
        Brush.Color:=clRed;
         Font.Color:=clAqua;
       end
      else
       begin
        Brush.Color:=$00DDDFFF;
         Font.Color:=clBlack;
       end;
      end;
//
   DefaultDrawColumnCell(Rect, DataCol, Column, State);
//
    Brush.Color:=OldBrush;
     Font.Color:=OldFont;
end;

Sincerely,
Nestorua.
