I think this is one area where the IB_Grid may let you down. Perhaps try
embedding a TIB_Memo control into the TIB_Grid and see if that will provide
the functionality you need. I have never tried embedding that control in a
grid but I use interfaces for that and the TIB_Memo should be implemented to
work. To embed it, just drop it on the TIB_Grid and set the properties like
you usually do, IBO should do the rest. But, I know the grid itself doesn't
have this capability.

Let us know how it goes.
