ActiveX Grid control to use on a form in Access 2007



For the DataGrid, you must know that control is definitely not a default item in the Visual Basic control toolbox, so you have to add this by yourself. That could be one of the reasons you are facing this problem. Let me guide you on how to get it done.

  1. First add the DataGrid control, then click on the project on the menu bar after which, you select Components. By now you should start getting access to the dialog box that displays all the available VB6 components which you can see.
  2. After that you have to Select Microsoft DataGrid Control 6.0 as a second step. This is essential.
  3. Now select the Microsoft ADO data control (important) before exiting the dialog box, or else you will not be able to access the database which means you will have to go back to Step 1.
  4. Now, click on the ‘OK’ button and you will exit the dialog box. This should be added to the DataGrid control and the ADO data control are added to the toolbox.
  5. The next step is you have to drag the DataGrid control and the ADO data control both into the form. This should help you with what you are looking for.

ActiveX Grid Control is useful for customizing with another data source, such as a Microsoft Access database (*.mdb). By using such control, you can create custom solution for use in your own application or for use in digital dashboard. The Grid Controls are said to be installed with a default Installation of Microsoft Project Server. 

To use ActiveX Controls, you must understand the interactions between your DDX code and the property values. ActiveX can be used in Visual Basic. There are two ways of learning ActiveX. 

The first is by writing ActiveX and the second is knowing about the COM. If you want to learn more about ActiveX controls grab a copy of ActiveX Controls Inside Out. You can also check ClassWizad for help.
