data-bound grid with selectable column

Hey
I'm currently working on an application (VB6) that uses an Access database for its data. I have tried and tried to be able to have a selecteble column in a Flex Grid and Hierarchial Flex Grid, but have not been successful.

The basic idea is that i can select the first column of a row from the flexgrid. and the flexgrid will put a tick or leave it unticked (True/False type thing), furthermore i need it to be able to change the underlying Access database field (which is a true/false field), either by code or not.
From the selected (ticked) rows i call some reports from the database and display them to the user (this part fine, can do this)

So does anyone know of a way of doing this? or is there a different control that can handle this.
btw i've tried CoolFlex, which works to an extent however would rather a data-bound version.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Regards
David
