>you mean timer?
yep

maybe additional things must be done,
depending on the complexity of your database-design
-> means, if you have to monitor many tables,
you could define a trigger for each table,
which updates or insert a row into one table,
which you could then easily poll

well, of course,
the database does not tell you that something has changed.

you have to build some kind of logic, where you can detect
a change, but how depends on your compare-values you have,
where you could lookup (query).

tell a bit more

you can use one more table in the DB. Let's say DB_CHANGES

DB_CHANGES
------------------------------------------
TABLE_NAME          IS_CHANGED

and you work with MY_TABLE.
write a trigger for MY_TABLE for AFTER insert, delete, update. When such event occur, you write in DB_CHANGES table.
and OnTimer you should execute this SQL:

SELECT * FROM DB_CHANGES
WHERE TABLE_NAME = 'MY_TABLE'
  AND IS_CHANGED = 1

then check if the DataSet is empty, and update this back to IS_CHANGED = 0. If the table MY_TABLE is changed, you can refresh the bigger DataSet attached to the DBGrid...
