Hi
I dont know wether this is right or not but you can use else to put the msg box

If m_pno = pn Then

With grd

.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 0) = vidno
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 1) = last + "," + first + "" + middle
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 2) = address
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 3) = age
End With
grd.Rows = grd.Rows + 1
else
 MsgBox "No Records Found in DataGrid!"
    grd.Clear
End If

please I am not sure.....but this may prove to be helpful

What only unharmful after effect it(this code) will have is this grid will have a blank row after the last record.

If m_pno = pn Then

With grd

.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 0) = vidno
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 1) = last + "," + first + "" + middle
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 2) = address
.TextMatrix(grd.Rows - 1, 3) = age
.Rows = grd.Rows + 1

End With

End If

And for record not found message use this at the end of procedure i.e. before "End Sub"

if grd.Rows = 2 then
MsgBox "No Records Found in DataGrid !"
end if

As if any matching record has found "grd.rows" value will be greater than 2.
