good day i have a project that i need to make invoices on.
the only suitable control i can think of the do the invoice itself on is a datagrid.
but i dont have much experience in this situation so i would rather get advice from the  experts rather than
burn myself later.
the user will click on a new row,and it should look something like this, similar to any  Accounting package
(Headers)
CODE  DESCRIPTION     QTY   UNIT PRICE  TAX   NETT PRICE

(e.g.)
12B   BIG POTATO      10          4      10%   44
11a   CHIPS                1          1      10%   1.2

i will need some functionality e.g.
the user will click on a field .e.g description field of row1
and then i must be able to load another form with descriptions of all my products.

after wards i must be able to take all the data on this control and update it to a dataset
can anyone recommend what control i should use and any possible hickups anyone knows what i would encounter.
or possibly a combination of controls i can use?
thank you!
