Subject Re: [IBO] Component Compatibility
Thanks for clarifying that for me (I was mistaken).

I'm working on an application now that was using an IB_Grid and now I
have to use DBGrid. This part of the application doesn't require
major data manipulation. Just a query, the results are put into a
grid and the users can export the data to any format they want, to do
with what they will.

I would only run into trouble if I wanted to use IB_Grid for some
specific functionality that DBGrid wouldn't or couldn't do. Am I
correct in this assumption?
