If you want to control when the grid is updated, then the
cleanest approach is to 'Insert' via an IB_DSQL procedure
direct into the database, and call refresh on the Grid when
YOU are ready.

If you want to use data aware controls, then just use an
IB_Cursor set up to give the fields you want, insert into
that and again you can call refresh (if needed) on the grid
at the right time.
