Subject In Grid editing
Author Robert martin
Hi All

I am using FB, IBOQuery, TDataSet and a custom DBGrid component that is
pretty much the same as TDBGrid. I don't do a lot of in-grid entry normally
but in this case it makes sense. I have a complex (but fast) query that
returns sales information for items supplied by one supplier (essentially a
report), that shows in a grid. I want to add two columns that allow data
entry into a separate table. What do people think is the best option?

The one I can think of is to simply link the other table to the query and
provide customised Update / Edit SQL statements. Is this appropriate or is
there a better way to do it?

p.s. I really want to stick with my customised TDBGrid component, from both
a functionality and application consistency perspective.
