Hi Jason

We have a gird for display purposes (POS items). When the user keys in an item it is inserted into the table the grid displays. The item appears as the first (top) item. Previously in our BDE / Dbase app the items listed at the bottom, based on an index the table uses.

If I need to do a refresh after each insert to make the table display correctly, will this have a negative impact on performance?

What do you mean by "go to the top"?

When doing inserts, they should simply stay where they are inserted until a
refresh is performed.
