Something like this I think (for VB6):

Dim rs As Recordset
Set rs = New Recordset
rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
rs.Open "Select * From Table WHERE No= '" & txtNo.Text & "'", con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rs

Dim i
Dim Total As Double

For i = 0 To DataGrid1.ApproxCount - 1
Total =Total + DataGrid1.Columns(2).CellValue(DataGrid1.GetBookmark(i))
Next

txtTotal.Text =Total

Open in new window

if you are using the DataGrid ( and not the MSFlexGrid), I think you would be better off doing an SQL summation on the desired column, not trying to add up cells of the displayed data.  
(ive never used DataGrid as found bound controls too troublesome.  the "approxCount" property raises concerns !)

<calculate the total number value>
Lets be clear...
Are you wanting to "Count" the values (Number or Text)  or "Add" them (Number Only)

Does VB6 not allow Aggregate Functions?

txtYourTextBox=Dcount("YourField","YourTable")
...for a count

Or this for a sum:
txtYourTextBox=Dsum("YourField","YourTable")

vb6 does not include Dsum

but should use a dbCommand object.

commandText = "SELECT SUM(myColumnName) FROM myDataTable"

Set recordset = connection.Execute (CommandText, RecordsAffected, Options)
