Presumably you like the idea of a TIB_LookupCombo because it supports incremental searching...yes? But, of course, the linking behaviour of lookup datasets is only operational in dssEdit mode. You could use TIB_LookupCombo this standalone (i.e. not in a grid) with a separate query populating the lookup list and no key-linking to the master dataset. Better still, - use TIB_IncSearch - it's like the SearchEdit but adds the incremental search capability - v. powerful. You attach it to a column in the same dataset - user types in the first few characters and the dataset positions on the first matching row.

If you have the GSG, there's a simple walk-through there using TIB_IncSearch. You might like to investigate TIB_SearchPanel too..
