Changing Data In A Datagrid Control
I'm trying to modify data in a DataGrid control through code. I'm able to read what's currently there, but i can't seem to find the property/method that will let me change the data in a certain cell. I'm guessing it MUST be possible, since the user can do it during runtime. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

Datagrid & ADO Data Control
Newbie question. I have created a Datagrid control bound to an ADO Data Control using a particular database account and password at design time. How do I use a different account and password at run time? The datagrid control apparently wants to connect first using the design time account/password before I can change the connection using code. In other languages, data sources can be disconnected at design time. I don't see how this is done with an ADO control.
Any help greatly appreciated.
Datagrid: No Ado Data Control
I am trying to populate a datagrid control without having to bind it to an ado data control.
the data, however, is not being displayed. The recordset is retrieving the records from my database but nothing is being displayed in my datagrid.
Here is my code
dim rsS as adodb.recordset
set rsS=new adodb.recordset
rsS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
rsS.CursorType = adOpenStatic
rsS.LockType = adLockOptimistic
rsS.Open "Select School_ID,School_Name,Address,Telephone from School Order by School_Name", connection
Set dgSchools.DataSource = rsS
Do I have to loop through the recordset and set the datafield property of the datagrid columns to the fields in the recordset?
I thought that by setting the datasource property that would be automatically done.
Datagrid & ADo Data Control

However, when i installed VB6 Disk 1 on the target machine and run my application, the lookup window works.
pls how can i figure out the missing file in my application?
Changing A Data Control Cursor Type To Clientside
Does anyone know how to change the cursor type for a Data Control to Client Side.
The only options i have in the drop down of the properties are Server Side, Default and ODBC and none of them work.

Find Or Seek On One Data Control By Changing The Recordsettype
DataBase Access2000 DAO and VB6.
I need a Find dialog box like the one in Access 2000 to do my findingseeking. I am using forms that have a data control of type vbRSTypeTable OR vbRSTypeDynaset.
Is there a way to change the RecordSetType for a data control with bound controls from type vbRSTypeTable to vbRSTypeDynaset so I can do a FIND on fields that are not indexed? And then later change it back to table so that I can do a SEEK on the fields that are indexed? Or vice versa?
If not then I will have to use data controls with type vbRSTypeDynaset and just use the find method

Inserting Data Using DataGrid Control
On a form, I have a combo box and a data grid.
Based on user's select in the combo box, data grid displays certain data which is supplied by stored procedure.

Thats how my dataGrid gets it data. I have set the AllowUpdates, AllowInsert, AllowDelete properties of the dataGrid to TRUE. But still there is no additional row on the dataGrid for the user to add data, neither can the user edit or delete.
What is wrong here. Please suggest.

DataGrid And ADO Data Control PROBLEMS!
I am quite new to database programming in VB.
I have a database that keeps track of different types of accommodations.....and also all the different units that eacy accommodation has.
For example........one accommodation is "Hotel"
and units could be 1, 2, 3, etc
What i want to do is make the program automatically display all the units in a data grid control for the selected type of accommodation.
I've tried doing this...
Adodc2.RecordSource = "SELECT tblUnits.UnitNumber FROM tblUnits WHERE tblUnits.AccTypeID = " & txtAccTypeID.Text
in order to change the data, but this doesnt do anything...the same units are displayd no matter which accommodation type is chosen.
What is the best way to do this?.......any help or advice you can give me would be welcome.

Problem Using An ADO Data Control And An ADO Datagrid In Excel.
I'm trying to use an ADO Data Control and link a ADO DataGrid to it to be able to browse/update an Access DB Table. Normal in VB6.0 you setup the ADODC and then just assign the Datasource property of the DataGrid to be the ADODC and it works. In Excel there is no Datasource property in the properties window and when I try to do it through code int the Form Initialise event I get the following error 'Method or Data Member not Found'.
Does anybody have any ideas what I'm doing wrong or how you link a DataGrid to an ADODC in Excel?
Datagrid Control Does Not Refresh With Data Environment
I am facing a problem with DATAGRID IN VISUAL BASIC 6.00.
I am using a DATAENVIRONMENT with a Connection Object that has OneCommand Object.
The command Object uses the Following Parametric SQL Statement.
SELECT * FROM mondet WHERE cntno=?
Pls note that Mondet is a child table with multiple entries in CNTNOfield - (ACCESS Table)
The Datagrid has the following Data Properties (Thru the PropertiesPage)
The Name of The Data Environment is DE1
the Name of the Command Object is COMMAND1
The Datagrid refreshes the first time. But when we run the parametricSQL Statement again to create a new
Recordset, a new Recordset is Created (Checked the Recordcount Propertyof RECORDSET in MSGBOX)
but the DATAGRID is not updated. I have Tried "Rebind", "Refresh"Methods etc. but to no avail.
Infact even the "Clearfields" method does not Work after the FirstRecordset is Created.
Can Anyone of You Help Me out. Pls See that the Datagrid works fine(also Refreshes) with a ADODC Control. But I
Need DATAENVIRONMENT control to be used.
Thanx in Advance

Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks
Automation Error (440) With ADO Data Control & DataGrid
I am using VB6 against a SQL Server 7 db.
This is a very simple program whereby the datagrid is populated
by Adodc1 without any VB code.
I added a Timer control to refresh the data grid every 10
seconds (Adodc1.Refresh) This works very well.
Problem: The program runs fine, refreshing the grid
periodically.... then after running for several minutes
(seems to always be about 4 - 5 minutes) get the
run-time Automation error (error 440)
The documentation for Error 440 says -" An error occurred
while executing a method"
Well, the only method being executed is the .Refresh
I can only guess that there is a Timeout problem occurring
or the SQL Server db is too busy to respond...?
I took the default values for Connection Timeout etc when I created
Has anyone had experience with Automation errors?
Thanks for any help.
Insertion Of Data Using Datagrid Control. VB + SQL Server
I have a problem in inserting the new record's data in DataGrid control.
I have got 2 tables. One table has a foreign key referring to the primary key of other table. Now records exist in primary key table and I am displaying the foreign key table in the Datagrid control. The fields displayed are partial for I dont want user to view all the fields of the table. Some to the fields get updated later as per the programming logic. But when I insert new record corresponding to the left out fields an error is displayed stating cannot insert null value.
Plz suggest a possible solution.

Updating MS Access Table With ADO Data Control From A Datagrid
I'm populating a datagrid with the data of a MS access table using ADO Data Control. If I change the datagrid values, its automatically updating the table contents.

Binding A DateTimePicker And/or ListBox To DataGrid To Control/restrict Input Data.
I have a DataGrid control with certain editable columns (some Numeric, some Date/Time fields) for which I would like to control/restrict input data. I want to acheive this by displaying a ListBox control or DateTimePicker control (as appropriate for that column) when a user clicks on the button in the cell.
I can display such controls external to the grid on the Button_Click event of the grid but I would rather have these pickers intrinsic to the grid...sure we've seen these all over the place?
Thanks in advance

DataGrid Not Changing On New Employee

Datagrid And Column Changing In Code
Does anyone know why sometimes when I change my column in a datagrid with code the column I am changing to takes on the value of the previous column?
For example the user is in column 7. The value that is in column 7 is "Test". Now say I change the column to 9 and the value in column 9 is "Test2". Why does column 9 all of the sudden take on the value of what was in column 7 and "Test2" becomes "Test" now? It does not happen always, but it happens often enough that it is becoming a real pain. Thanks if anyone can give me any advice on this.

Refresh DataGrid(Microsoft DataGrid Control 6.0)
I am having a problem refreshing the datagrid in the following scenario:
I have Form1 with ADODC control and DataGrid(Microsoft DataGrid Control 6.0). The grid (is used to display employee records) contains 5 columns (for example Office telephone number) . On clicking of a row on the grid the details window opens up. This window is used to update the employee information. On saving the employee record if Office telephone number is changed then the datagrid should be refreshed with latest data of the record. The refresh is done using the following command:
If the message box is commented then the refresh statements do not get executed. I need a solution for that.

Changing The Font Attributes In A Datagrid Column
I am using a datagrid in a VB6 program to display data from a SQL 7.0 table. I want the data in one column only to display with the text underlined; the help says (and I quote)"Each column of the DataGrid control has its own font, border, word wrap, and other attributes that can be set without regard to other columns" - but how? The column object doesn't seem to have a font property ..It's driving me mad, any help gratefully received!
DATAGRID Selecting Rows And Changing Value Of A Cell
Hello all. Well, my application is comming along quickly, with just a few quirks here and there, this is another.
I have a DBGrid control on my form, the DBGrid is connected to my database, and I want to be able to update a value of a cell that is in the selected row. The selected row will have the current system date entered into a date cell of the selected row. My problem is; should I use check boxes to select the rows that are to be updated, or just have the user select the row itself? my concern is if the user changes thier mind, and dosn't want to select that row. I've read about using a for loop to do this, but I can't seem to make it work:
Private Sub dbGridReturnDwg_Click()
intCount = dbGridReturnDwg.SelBookmarks.Count - 1
For i = 0 To intCount
ArrSelBK(i) = dbGridReturnDwg.SelBookmarks(i)
If Rs.Fields("issuane.return_date") = "" Then
newNumIssued = Rs.Fields("issuance.num_issued")
newNumIssued = newNumIssued - 1 'subtracts 1 from the number of times this drawing has been issued
Rs.Fields("issuance.return_date") = TodayDate
Rs.Fields("issuance.num_issued") = newNumIssued
Else 'if the date field is not empty, the drawing must have already been returned
MsgBox "The drawing has already been returned!"
dbGridReturnDwg.SelBookmarks.Remove (i) 'this statement may not be needed
Something tells me I need to add the index (i) to the Rs statement i.e.
Rs.Fields(i,"issuance.return.date") = TodayDate
Detect DataGrid Column Width Changing In VB.Net
I hope to know when the width of a datagrid column is changed.
In VB6, we have this: DataGrid_ColResize(ByVal ColIndex As Integer, Cancel As Integer)
In .Net, we don't have "ColResize" event any more. I found that when you changes the column width, click evnet is fired. However, click event is too general. It will also be fired when you select a row or click the title of a column.
Any idea ?
Problem With Changing The Type Of A Column In A Datagrid
I'm using a Datagrid that is feeding on an access database. I got a column that have the path of an item and I want to show a yes or no value in my datagrid. Yes if there's a path and no if there's no path. I dont want to change the value in my database, so I just want to change the visual effect on my datagrid. Best thing I found was to change the type of my column by a boolean so if the row was empty, the false value would appear and the true value would appear if not empty ! Problem is that i get #ERROR if there's a path inside the column...
here's the code for the type changing :
Dim fmt as new StdDataFormat
fmt.Type = fmtBoolean
fmt.FalseValue = NO
fmt.NullValue = NO
fmt.TrueValue = YES
Set dgListUsten.Columns(6).DataFormat = fmt
Set fmt = Nothing
dgListUsten is the datagrid
I tried to make a loop with an if so that I can change the value in the column for each row but the problem is that I change the value in my database and it's something that I don't want to do... Is-there a way to put an error handling method so that the #ERROR would become a yes ?
Anyhelp would be appreciated,

Changing Data Format And Create Other, Alterative Data
I have the following text formatted numeric data in column A
Here's the code for the above

Set CheckboxRange = [A1:BG1].SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 2)
For Each ThisCell In CheckboxRange
s = s & "&" & ThisCell(4).Address(False, False)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
[BH4] = "=" & Mid(s, 2, Len(s) - 1)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
I need to add a vb code to the above that :
When a type e.g. an "X" in the cell A1 it will NOT write the column's A results but it will
format column's A data to numbers and then it will write a column B using the condition:
If the cell in column A is "> 0" then the result will be 1 else it will be 0.
This is what i ll get
------------------------------------------------------------------------Otherwise when the cell is null (without the "X") the result will come from the code
i wrote and i ll get column's A result
