I have a datagrid in vb6.  I have columns 10 through 35 that should have numbers in them.  From the datagrid I want them to autoTotal into column 36.  Is there a way to do this.  Its kind of simalar to what Microsoft Excel does with the SUM function.

Add a column to your datasource, then loop through it and run a sum and put the result into the column you added.

table.Columns.Add("mysum")

for each row in table
  for i = 10 to 35
    table("mysum") += row(i)
  next
next

Is that code for vb6?  The following line does not work

table("Total") += row(i)

Meaning your formula does not work.  Will this work?

For Each Row In Table
  For i = 10 To 35
    Row("Total") = Row("Total") + Row(i)
  Next
Next

It would be very helpful if you provided the error messages instead of just saying "it doesn't work".

Ok, originally you sent the code and it showed Expected:expression   Compile error on this line

table("mysum") += row(i)

Right. Now that you have the code below, what errors do you have now?

For Each Row In Table.Rows
  For i = 10 To 35
    Row("Total") = Row("Total") + Row(i)
  Next
Next

ha, good catch.  I changed it to the following:

For Each Row In DataGrid1.Row
  For i = 10 To 35
    Row("Total") = Row("Total") + Row(i)
  Next
Next

But I still get an error on the first line:

Compile error:
For Each may only iterate over a collection object or array

al, is your datagrid binding to a table or are you adding into the grid programmatically?

Programmatically, as follows:

      rec.CursorType = adOpenDynamic
      rec.CursorLocation = adUseClient
      rec.LockType = adLockOptimistic
      rec.Open esql, conn, , , adCmdText



     
        Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rec
