I assume that you have done a good check on the properties of the datagrid control?

No. It cannot be done!

You can use the standard flexgrid control that ships with VB but this does not have the ability to enter data directly into cells, nor does it happily handle data-binding with ADO recordsets.

A better idea might be to buy a control which does it all such as the TrueDBGrid or VSFlexgrid from http://www.componentone.com
