My OLEDB Provider is Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0.
The DataGrid control appears totally blank for the following recordset setting:
    With rs
        .CursorLocation = adUseServer
        .CursorType = adOpenKeyset
        .LockType = adLockOptimistic
    End with
And for this:
    With rs
        .CursorLocation = adUseServer
        .CursorType = adOpenDynamic
        .LockType = adLockOptimistic
     End With
the error message is :"The rowset is not bookmarkable.".
But for client-side cursor,DataGrid displays all the records.What's the problem?

The DataGrid needs to have access to the complete recordset before displaying it. That's why you need to use a Client side cursor.

The DataGrid needs a Client-Sided cursor. Other controls normally display one record at a time so they don't have problems.
