Once upon a time there was a form, and on that form there lived a grid. It needs to be bound programmatically, so set up the columns at design time with no RecordSources or anything other than size and header captions, and all columns except one as readonly,. The one thaat is NOT readonly has

Anyone looked at this? http://revstudio.runrev.com/ It's a cross-platform dev tool that supposedly builds on the old Hypercard concept much loved of Mac folks from back in the day. I've got a demo copy I'll see what it's like WRT database stuff. ___

I've looked myself in the past and you're right, it does need someone to write an iFilter driver for .PRG and the other VFP metadata files. Essentially what is needed is an iFilter driver for DBF and memo files. Unfortunately the iFilter API seems to require some hefty C++ skills. -- Alan
