Using the following code in vb6, I have opened all columns for edit

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

Dim sTemp As String

With MSFlexGrid1

sTemp = .TextMatrix(.Row, .Col)

Select Case KeyAscii
Case 8 ' backspace
If Len(sTemp) > 0 Then
sTemp = Left$(sTemp, Len(sTemp) - 1)
End If
Case 27 ' escape
sTemp = ""
Case 0 To 31
KeyAscii = 0
Case Else
sTemp = sTemp & Chr$(KeyAscii)
End Select
.TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = sTemp
End With

End Sub

Open in new window


How do I limit the editing to only to the 7th column in my table

I am using vb6 and msflexgrid

Try

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

Dim sTemp As String

With MSFlexGrid1

sTemp = .TextMatrix(.Row, .Col)

If .Col <> 6 Then Exit Sub ' This might need to be 7
Select Case KeyAscii
Case 8 ' backspace
If Len(sTemp) > 0 Then
sTemp = Left$(sTemp, Len(sTemp) - 1)
End If
Case 27 ' escape
sTemp = ""
Case 0 To 31
KeyAscii = 0
Case Else
sTemp = sTemp & Chr$(KeyAscii)
End Select
.TextMatrix(.Row, .Col) = sTemp
End With
