Ola,

I want to prevent users from editing Column 0 in my dataGrid.
This is the code I use to prevent it.
Private Sub grdDataGrid_ColEdit(ByVal ColIndex As Integer)
    If ColIndex = 0 Then
        MsgBox "U may not change this column"
        cmdAdd.SetFocus
    End If
End Sub

But I do want to allow them to edit col 0 when they are entering a new record ( editing col 0 of the last row )

How can this be done?

You may have your own flag that tells you if your in Add mode

'Declare a Flag on the form (on top)
Private OnAddMode As Boolean

'Let you know that you're in Add Mode
Private Sub grdDataGrid_BeforeInsert(Cancel As Integer)
     OnAddMode = True
End Sub

'Make a little adjustment
Private Sub grdDataGrid_ColEdit(ByVal ColIndex As Integer)
    If ColIndex = 0 And Not OnAddMode Then
        MsgBox "U may not change this column"
        cmdAdd.SetFocus
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub grdDataGrid_AfterUpdate()
    OnAddMode = False
End Sub

hope this helps. :)
