Converting simple VB 5 dbgrid app to VB 6

Converting simple VB 5 dbgrid app to VB 6

Okay, this must be simple for someone. I have a simple VB 5 app using a dbgrid32.ocx and the normal datasource controls. When I bring it up in VB 6, it seems the dbgrid32.ocx doesn't exist, and it gets replaced with a picture box. Okay, so I replace the picture box with the VB 6 dbgrid, but then the datasource component gives an error. It seems that the VB 5 datasource component isn't compatible with VB 6 either... and now I'm thinking, "why didn't microsoft include a stinking converter for vb 5 components to vb 6 components?" Did they? I can't find it. Any suggestions?
