I have a data grid in vb6.  The columns have a default width when the records pull up.  I want to decrease the width of the columns in the datagrid, so that it looks like it will only hold one number.

How can I do this, if at all?

If you are using DataGrid, you can set the size of a column this way:
DataGrid1.Columns(0).Width = 100

If you are using MSFlexGrid, you can do this:
MSFlexGrid1.ColWidth(0) = 100

If i do:

 DataGrid1.Columns(0).Width = 0
 DataGrid1.Columns(1).Width = 100

will they be two different lengths?

Yes. Each column will have a different size. In fact, if you set first column with value 0, it will be "invisible".

When I do :

 DataGrid1.Columns(1).Width = 500
 DataGrid1.Columns(2).Width = 250
 DataGrid1.Columns(3).Width = 250
 DataGrid1.Columns(4).Width = 250
 DataGrid1.Columns(5).Width = 250
 DataGrid1.Columns(6).Width = 250

I get subscript out of range for the second line.  Why?
