Dynamically Populate MSFlexGrid Control

If you use an MSFlexGrid control to display data returned in an ADO recordset, you can use this code to dynamically populate the grid—including the header row—with the information in the recordset. You need an open ADO recordset named rst and a form containing an MSFlexGrid control named msfGrid:
 
Dim cln As Field
With msfGrid
	.Rows = 2
	.Cols = rst.Fields.Count  
	'get the number of grid cols
	.FixedRows = 1
	.FixedCols = 0
	.Row = 0
	.Col = 0
	For Each cln In rst.Fields
		.Text = cln.Name  
		'populate header row with names of fields
		If .Col < .Cols - 1 Then .Col = .Col + 1
	Next
	Do While Not rst.EOF   
	'loop thru recordset to populate grid
		.Row = rst.AbsolutePosition
		'move to the next row
		.Col = 0   
		'reset ourselves back to column(0)
		For Each cln In rst.Fields
			If Not IsNull(cln.Value) Then
				.Text = Trim(CStr(cln.Value))
			Else
				.Text = ""
			End If
			If .Col < .Cols - 1 Then .Col = .Col + 1
		Next
		rst.MoveNext
		.Rows = .Rows + 1  
		'add a new row to the grid
	Loop
	.Rows = .Rows - 1   
	'remove the last row because it's blank
	.Row = 0
End With
