Hello Experts.
I have a procedure (Proc_1) that is doing tasks on a Dbgrid and Data.
I want this procedure to be a procedure that I can call from different forms in the program.
Therefore, I will have to call the procedure with different Dbgrids and Datas, and the procedure will perform the task.

Public Sub Proc_1(Dbgrid1, Data1)
  Dim The_Db as DBgrid
  Dim The_Data as Data
...
...
...

End Sub

Can anybody help and give me the solution?
Thanks

Your sub should be in a standard module, and read rather like this (for type security):

Public Sub Proc_1(The_DB as DBGripd, The_Data as Data)

 ...
 ...
 ...

End Sub

Now, I don't see your problem?!

I did it as follows:

Public Sub Proc_1(The_DB as DBGripd, The_Data as Data)

dim Db1 as DBgrid
dim Data1 as Data

set db1=The_DB
...
...

End Sub

But how do I send The_DB to this procedure?

First,
Public Sub Proc_1(The_DB as DBGripd, The_Data as Data)

dim Db1 as DBgrid
dim Data1 as Data

set db1=The_DB
...

you don't need to use the SET db1 = THE_db, but you could use the The_DB variable instead.

Now, when you call this proc from your form, you simply call the procedure like this ( i assume that the grid and the data in that form are called MyGrid and MyData ):

Call Proc_1 (MyGrid, MyData)
