Hi sms2k,

You cannot remove a column except for the last column in the grid (by setting .Cols = .Cols - 1) or similar. If you want to remove a column that is not at the right-hand end of the grid then you need to either transfer the data from column x to x - 1 and so on until you have enough free columns at the end to remove. Alternatively simply set the .ColWidth(ColumNo) property = 0 to hide the column. This could prove faster and easier, also if you later decide to reinstate the data you do not have to repopulate this column.
