VB6 - Datagrid question

Hey guys,

I want to use ADODC object to populate a DataGrid ( I have already done this) then I want run SQL queries on the DataGrid instead of the live SQL database. Is this possible?

basic code...

Form Load
ado1.recordset = "select * from products"
ado1.refresh

Datagrid1's datasource = ado1

So on load, Datagrid1 displays the entire products table. Now instead of querying the database again. I just want to query the data grid. Something like "select * from datagrid1 where active = 1"

I am trying to avoid constantly querying the database so I dont impact performance of the site. Is this possible?

Well what you could do is something like this

ado1.RecordSource = "select * from products"
ado1.refresh
Set Datagrid1.DataSource = ado1

Now you can use the Filter property of the ado1.RecordSet to polupate what ever view you want in the DataGrid1 something like

Ado1.RecordSet.Filter = "Action = '1'"
then to show again all Data
Ado1.RecordSet.Filter = adFilterNone
