Hi Woody

That worked fine for adding all items at the bottom. However we have a couple of items we like to always show at the bottom of the list (discount / freight). Usually or index handles this. So I think I am still stuck with an insert + refresh system (yuk).

> 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.

correctly, will this have a negative impact on performance?

Rob, try using Append instead of Insert. It should then put the new record
at the bottom of the grid.
