Populate MSFlexGrid with Data from Mysql

Dear Experts,
I'm new with msflexgrid and im required to do some programming with it. I've setup my msflexgrid so that the user can enter values to each individual cells. However, now i want it so that whenever the user input a text and pressed enter on a very first column on each row, i want the second column to display values from mysql database. (ie. if the user entered an item_code of (BR02) in column 1, i want the 2nd column to get that item_code from mysql and then display the item_name). How am i suppose to do this? Thank you experts

Slythie; I prepare you a code snippet to show you how you can do that.
The code, suppose:
ADO_Conn: is an open ADO connection to a MySQL database
Review the msFlexGrid name, the table and fields name, because i use generic names.
Col1: the col where the itemCode is
Col2: the col where the ItemName will be

    With oRS
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .Open sSQL, ADO_Conn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText
        If (Not (oRS.EOF)) Then
            ItemName = oRS.Fields("ItemName")
        End If

        If (OldCol <> NewCol) Or (OldRow <> NewRow) Then
            'if the oldCol is the col where the itemCode is...get the itemName of it
            If (OldCol = 1) Then
                Dim code As String
                code = .TextMatrix(OldRow, 1)
                .TextMatrix(OldRow, 2) = ItemName(code)
