if you are using microsoft access then here:
Option Explicit()
dim cn as ADODB.Connection
dim rs as Adodb.RecordSet
dim strDataBasePath


Private Sub Form Load()
`****Setting the connection*****

Set cn = new AdoDB.connection
Set rs = new Adodb.Recordset

`****specify the PAth

strDataBasePath = "c:\Nwind.mdb"

`******setting the provider to use

cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=`" & strDataBasePath & "`"

`*** important****
cn.CursorLocation = adUseClient


rs.open "Select * From tblOwners", cn, adOpenKeySet, adLockOptimistic

`binding the control

Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rs

Datagrid1.refresh

End sub

If you are using SQL Server then change the Provider...

goto www.connectionstring.com

for a list of connection strings...

I hope I help you

Dim objConn As New adodb.Connection
Dim objCmd As New adodb.Command
Dim objParm1 As New adodb.Parameter
Dim objRs As New Recordset
Dim strSQL

    objConn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;User ID=xxx;Password=xxx;Initial Catalog=xxx;Server=xxxx;Connect Timeout=60;Use Procedure for Prepare=1;Auto Translate=True;Packet Size=4096;Workstation ID=WEBTRACKER"

    ' Set CommandText equal to the stored procedure name.
    objCmd.CommandText = "getcustomeraddr"
    objCmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
   
    strSQL = "SELECT first_name + char(13) + last_name as 'name' From customer where customer_id = 1"
   
    objRs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    objRs.Open strSQL, objConn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
    Set dgCustomers.DataSource = objRs
   
    dgCustomers.Refresh


    objRs.Close
    objConn.Close
    Set objRs = Nothing
    Set objConn = Nothing

did you try executing your query in the SQL server? does it returns any records?..
strSQL = "SELECT first_name + char(13) + last_name as 'name' From customer where customer_id = 1"

change this code...

    objRs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
   
to this

objconn.Cursorlocation = adUseClient

it should be connectionstring not the recordset...

you mat need to use a commercial grid for that... WHY? becauase datagrid has lack of functionality on what you are aiming for...
