{How to stop the dbgrid control from auto-appending a new entry when you move
down after the last record in a table.
It creates a new blank line / record in the table. Can this be stopped?}

{A: Add to your TTables's "BeforeInsert"  event the following line:}

procedure TForm1.Tbable1BeforeInsert(DataSet: TDataSet);
begin
  
Abort;  {<<---this line}
end;

{A: It traps the down key and checks for end-of-file.}

procedure TForm8.DBGrid1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin
  if 
(Key = VK_DOWN) then
  begin
    
TTable1.DisableControls;
    TTable1Next;
    if TTable1.EOF then
      
Key := 0
    else
      
TTable1.Prior;
    TTable1.EnableControls;
  end;
end;
