MS DataGrid control on Access2000

Posted on 2002-07-05
Last Modified: 2006-11-17
I wonder if any of you can send me an example of using this control (the one that ships with VB 6.0) to show the results from a query (or a runtime builded recordset) in an MS Access 2000 form?

A datasheet subform is much more flexible.
Just check the right-click options.

I know datasheet subforms. But in this case I'm asking for DataGrid control.

Then I can't help you as I just try to prevent the use of those type of controls as much as possible.
They just lead to .mdb's that are harder to move to other PC's.
But perhaps the help can assist you. After placing the control a right-click on the control should also reveal a help option specific for the control when M$ did their work properly...
