Hello all,

I want to be able to fix the country name in my MSHFlexGrid1.

Let me explain:

In my Grid, in the 5ft column "Origin_Reg_Key", i have multiple type of numbers. 2 of them are 5 and 8.

I need to be able to first, if there is a number 5 or 8 in column 5, then it will look at the first digit from the column 7 "Origin_Reg".

If the first character is a letter, then in column 8 "Origin_Country", it will put "CANADA". If the first character is a number, it will put "USA".

I need to do the same thing with  column 9-11-12.

How can i do this please.

Thanks

I wrote the following from memory of similar processing and have not tested it against any live data in a flexgrid control.  Please try it to verify (intended) results.
For lngLoop = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows
  Select Case Val(MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 5))
    Case 5,8
      If IsNumeric(Left$(MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 7), 1)) Then
        MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 8) = "USA"
      Else
        MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 8) = "CANADA"
      End If
  End Select
  Select Case Val(MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 9))
    Case 5,8
      If IsNumeric(Left$(MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 11), 1)) Then
        MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 12) = "USA"
      Else
        MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 12) = "CANADA"
      End If
  End Select
Next

Hello aikimark,

I have an error: Variable nor define on:

For lngLoop = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows

Should i put Dim lngLoop  as Integer?

If so then i have another error: Method or member of data not found:
Select Case val(MSHFlexGrid1.Column(lngLoop, 5))

Yes.  You will need to define a lngLoop variable (as long)

Yes.  That statement should have referenced the text at that location.  When I wrote that, I was referencing your problem description and was thinking in terms of columns.  I didn't adjust the statement when I added the row identifier.
Select Case val(MSHFlexGrid1.Text(lngLoop, 5))

I have changed for
Select Case val(MSHFlexGrid1.Text(lngLoop, 5))

But it does not want to take the .text.

It say: Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment.
