Well, perhaps I'm just implementing wrong... but I don't see how.

Yeah, that's it!  LOL  Oh well - not important if I can just get the
range to work right.

I had looked as well being the lazy programmer I am... ;-)  However
regarding making a TCustomGrid from mine, I doubt it - I've made it
very, very custom to be for a checkbook register.  Of course the

Ah - cool.  Is this to say that the AutoScroll property isn't working in
my CVS?  Could that be the root of the problem?  I've turned off
AutoScroll so I could handle the ranges myself and get these weird
