hi, try this:
insert to ur form:
TSQLConnection
TSQLClientDataSet
TDataSource
TDBGrid
----------
- TSQLClientDataSet->DBConnection needs to belinked to TSQLConnection
- TDataSource->DataSet needs to be linked to TSQLClientDataSet
- TDBGrid->DataSource needs to be linked to TDataSource
------
now in ur code,u only have todo:
SQLClientDataSet->CommandType = ctTable;
SQLClientDataSet->CommandText = <thetablename>;
SQLClientDataSet->Open();

thats all.
