What's the difficulty with using a single datasource from a DBGrid and DBTexts?

I am a little puzzled by the question and answer headed "Databases: how can I use two different Data Controls to display data from a single DataSource and Table?" What is the difficulty in D1 with simply using a single datasource for both a DBGrid and a number of DBTexts? Particular fields can be suppressed from the grid by creating a full set of TFields and setting visible to false so I fail to see just what the original problem was. Am I missing something obvious?

You're not missing anything at all. In fact, you can do just that. The only problem (which I should have mentioned) is the creation of so many TFields. Since the reader was keying on a single column, the solution I provided him was required less resources, and was a much cleaner implementation than going through the process of creating TField objects then switching them off individually. Sorry if I misled you...
