For the datagrid you need an ADODC or ADODB to get the recordset and populate the Datagrid

But take the msflexgrid, this can have data from a recordset and also separate data not coming from a table. eg. if you want to compute some values and dispaly you can use msflexgrid or mshflexgrid. In both of these it is not necessary that the values to be displayed should be from the recordset.

Whereas as far as DATA GRID is concerned it should be connected to the recordset. You cannot do manipulations like that of EXCEL which can be done in the other two.

One important advantage of Data grid is it is very simple BUT less flexible. Also if you have large amount of datas to be displayed in a grid, data grid takes very less time compared two other two grids.

Hope this have cleared your doubts
