How do you connect a DataGrid to a set of array variables or a recordset that exists only in memory?

This recordset is to be written to at runtime and its content discarded afterwards.

You could use a StringGrid on runtime when you populate it with data. When you want to update, insert... into a real Table you can get the fields from the stringGrid. And of course you can leave it like that if you don't want any updates nor inserts made.

use a TClientDataset - it's an in-memory DataSet descendant that does a lot more
doubleclick on it and add New fields, then use CreateDataset to open it
also add MidasLib to the uses clause to staticaly link in the midas lib :)
