In my datagrid i have 2 columns only.One column contains more(above 500) characters at that time iam not getting horizontal scroll to view the full data.

Below is the code which iam using:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" creationComplete="init()">
            import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
            private function init():void
                  var array:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection();
                  array.addItem({errorCode: "World of Warcraft",sourceRecord: "ddddddddddddddddddddddsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeesdffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffdddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddeeeeeeeeee"});
            dgFilteredCount.dataProvider = array;
<mx:Canvas id="emailCanvas" width="100%"  >

      <mx:DataGrid id="dgFilteredCount" automationName="dgFilteredCount"
              width="100%"  horizontalScrollPolicy="on"
             height="355"  >
                  <mx:DataGridColumn id="errorCode" dataField="errorCode" minWidth="50"  color="black" headerText="{resourceManager.getString('locale', 'listManager.filters.ErrorCode')}"/>
                  <mx:DataGridColumn id="sourceRecord" dataField="sourceRecord" minWidth="50"  color="black" headerText="{resourceManager.getString('locale', 'listManager.filters.SourceRecord')}"/>

You don't get a scroll bar because your column is NOT as wide as your text is by default.

If you combine those two ideas:
1) http://www.jonnyfunfun.com/2008/11/11/flex-advanceddatagrid-datagrid-optimizicator/
2) http://viconflex.blogspot.com/2006/12/autosizing-datagrid-with-horizontal.html
I think you might find a working solution.
