When I try to do so, I get the dreaded error message and I cannot go further. The only options on the Error Message are "OK" and "Help". There is no option to open and edit the grid properties. Also, I have just found out the hard way that I cannot edit the error in the Class Browser at the CodeView program. Where do I go from here?

Thanks again Jamie. That did it nicely. Why did that happen? I have made beaucoup syntax errors before and this never happened?
Another question-- what I was actually working on at the time--- I have set up a 5-column grid which insists upon displaying its five columns in the order of the table, fields 1 through 5. I want to use fields 2-6 and have accordingly set the ControlSource for each TextBox of each column to the proper field. But it continues to show them as 1-5. I can work around it by going back and rearranging the order of the fields in the table to 2-6,then 1. But as a novice, I want to understand why my setting each ControlSource is not being recognized by the App?
