A datagrid displays data on a form or web page... similar to excel.... a
dataview is a subset or snapshot of data (can be either depending on how you
use it)... it has no user interface and is similar to a view in SQL
Server... that is my understanding anyway....

Cheers

I should also point out that a dataview can be used to supply data to be
displayed in a datagrid...

Hi MCN,

A datagrid is a grid control for displaying data.
A dataview is a view of the data as a dataset, that is, it is the results of a
query on the existing dataset. Think of a dataview as a dataset.
