I have VB6 installed and I'm trying to open an old program that requires dbgrid.ocx. I do not have this file on my hard drive or the VB Studio install CDs. Is there anyplace I can download that file from?

I've already been there and none of the zips contain the actual "dbgrid.ocx" file.

did your project use any third party controls?

No 3rd party. My understanding is that it shipped with VB4.

Here is the problem. You cannot use DBGrid.Ocx with VB6. It is not compatible.  See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;161344.
All I found were either third party or self built components. To use DBGrid.ocx you need VB4. To you really want to downgrade?
My suggestion is to upgrade the application to a VB6, using DBGrid32.ocx, which comes with VB5 and higher.
