That's not quite what I said.

I said that I'd found it was too easy for the user to make mistakes when
editing in a grid especially where one used a combobox as the editor
object for a cell.  Based on this I never use a grid for data entry or
editing.  I always do data entry and editing in entryfields and/or

Because I'm trying to make code I write for myself "SQL server ready"  I
don't use datalinked entryfields or comboboxes.   On the other hand, if
the code is never going to use data from a SQL server datalinked
entryfields and comboboxes save a lot of coding.

A grid can ONLY display data from a datalinked table.   If you want to,
say, display data from an array in a grid you first have to write the
array out to a temporary table.

I'm not too well at the moment and I can't spend as much time at the
computer as I would like.  I will, however, try and create a little
example for you soon.
