Row handle referred to a deleted row or row marked for deletion

I have code in vb6 where I am trying to add the column for a total.  After I make a deletion, I get the posted error:

"Row handle referred to a deleted row or  row marked for deletion"  The error happens on line 5

Why does this happen?

Private Sub DataGrid2_AfterDelete()

SumTotal = 0
Do Until rec2.EOF = True
   SumTotal = SumTotal + rec2("GrossAmount")
GrossTotal = SumTotal

SumTotal = 0
Do Until rec2.EOF = True
   SumTotal = SumTotal + rec2("NetAmount")
NetTotal = SumTotal

End Sub

After deleting a record from a DataGrid control, you should use the Refresh method on it to force the DataGrid to update. Otherwise, although a record has been deleted from the underlying recordset, the record will still show in the DataGrid.
Note: To preserve Column Buttons you must invoke the HoldFields method in InitGrid Function.
