I am trying to obtain values from a database and ive tried using SQL and a datagrid but nothing seems to be happening except run time error 6153.

What i am trying to do is obtain the value from a column 3 and match it to the text in column 1.

e.g  I have 4 records

dave     Cost = £40
phil       Cost = £20
george  Cost = £30
jamie    Cost = £10

i also need the values to be obtained during each load as the database field will be updated

thx in advance
