Takea look at the Company sampel app - the FRM_Employee unit. That
shows the use of IB_LookupCombo on a grid with descriptive display.
Pay particular attention to the lookupdataset.KeyDescLinks property -
which ties the descriptive field from the lookup to the
computed/embedded-select descriptive field on the main dataset. This
is necessary to use lookupcombo on grids.
