Lets say the user clicks a row in the grid. Generally when we fill the grid we set the first column's width as 0 and fill that columns with the primary key. Now when the user clicks the row, fill a variable with the value of the first columns data and on press of delete button use this value.

Dim intPrimary as Integer

On GridClick:

On Delete Click:
strSQL="Delete from MyTable Where MyPrimaryKey=" & intPrimary
cnConnection.execute strSQL
