You want to search in datagrid or search record in database?

yes, thats it,like if i type on the txtbox automatically display on the datagrid
but dont know how to code it.
can u help me?

Ok. So when you type on textbox then there are data display on datagrid.
Use textbox change event to make searching every you type a word on textbox.
This is an example of searching using datagrid. Modified as you needed.

Private Sub Text1_Change()
 Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
        rs.CursorType = adOpenDynamic
        rs.LockType = adLockOptimistic
        rs.Open "SELECT * FROM Login where fname  like " & "'%" & Text1.Text & "%'", Conn, , , adCmdText

    Set DataGrid1.DataSource = rs
    DataGrid1.Columns(0).Width = 2000
    DataGrid1.Columns(1).Width = 2000

    DataGrid1.AllowAddNew = False
    DataGrid1.AllowArrows = True
    DataGrid1.AllowDelete = False
    DataGrid1.AllowUpdate = False
End Sub

thank you so much, it works.

This may be useful to find data from Grid.
Please find attached project.
It will be able to find and replace the text from MSFlexGrid's Cells
