Enter Data on an MSFlexGrid

You can use MSFlexGrid for data entry without using additional ActiveX controls. For this, use the KeyPress and KeyUp events. To use the MSFlexGrid for data entry, add the grid—named FlxGrdDemo—to a form and copy this code:
 
Private Sub FlxGrdDemo_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
	Select Case KeyAscii
		Case vbKeyReturn
			' When the user hits the return key 
			' this code'll move the next cell or row.
			With FlxGrdDemo
				If .Col + 1 <= .Cols - 1 Then
					.Col = .Col + 1
				ElseIf .Row + 1 <= .Rows - 1 Then
					.Row = .Row + 1
					.Col = 0
				Else
					.Row = 1
					.Col = 0
				End If
			End With
		Case vbKeyBack
		' Delete the previous character when the 
		' backspace key is used.
			With FlxGrdDemo
				If Trim(.Text) <> "" Then _
					.Text = Mid(.Text, 1, Len(.Text) - 1)
			End With
		Case Is < 32
		' Avoid unprintable characters.
		Case Else 'Else print everything
			With FlxGrdDemo
				.Text = .Text & Chr(KeyAscii)
			End With
	End Select
End Sub
Private Sub FlxGrdDemo_KeyUp(KeyCode As _
	Integer, Shift As Integer)
	Select Case KeyCode
		' Copy
		Case vbKeyC And Shift = 2 ' Control + C
			Clipboard.Clear
			Clipboard.SetText FlxGrdDemo.Text
			KeyCode = 0
		' Paste
		Case vbKeyV And Shift = 2 'Control + V
			FlxGrdDemo.Text = Clipboard.GetText
			KeyCode = 0
		' Cut
		Case vbKeyX And Shift = 2 'Control + X
			Clipboard.Clear
			Clipboard.SetText FlxGrdDemo.Text
			FlxGrdDemo.Text = ""
			KeyCode = 0
		' Delete
		Case vbKeyDelete
			FlxGrdDemo.Text = ""
	End Select
End Sub
You can set the FillStyle property to FlexFillRepeat, which makes the changes to all the selected cells.
