Hi,
Is there any third-party grid component available, free or paid, that can be integrated to dBASE, and easy handling user inputs on grid cells without memory errors?
Actually, I want to be able to enter inputs in a grid as I would have done in Excel.
The Grid will linked to MS SQL or MySQL table

Note: if this grid can be integrated in VB, I will be able to use it in dBASE

Are you referring to VB classic, or VB.NET?

I use DevExpress's XtraGrid, and it's a very nice grid control. The learning curve is a bit steep, but it can be setup to mimic Excel almost exactly.

I don't know that is can be integrated to dBASE, but I would assume it can. The support guys as DevExpress could tell you that fairly quick.

Can you post some sample code how to use it. Just how to access the component it self

I'm not sure what you mean. You install DevExpress, drop the grid onto your form, and then work with the grid's properties. If you bind the control to a datasource, then you don't really have to do much else, other than setup the properties and such of the grid.

Actually, I am not even able to see it among components installed from dbase. Does it come with an ocx or dll file that I can register in the registry and be able to call it from dbase.

I'm not sure about DBase, I don't use it. The DevExpress components can be used with many programming environments, however, like Visual Studio.

If you're referring to this: http://www.dbase.com/dbasesql/overview/, then I'm afraid you'll not find much in the way of 3rd party utilities for that. You'd need to switch over to a more robust programming environment to take advantage of things like DevExpress.
