To use the ADO Import Genie, you must have ADO available. To have ADO available means you must have MDAC installed.
If you have problems with MDAC, this link takes you to a Microsoft utility named Component Checker that can repair you MDAC installation. From the Microsoft site:
"Component Checker utility has been redesigned to provide XML support. The new tool includes updated snapshots for MDAC 2.7 SP1 on Windows XP SP1 and MDAC 2.8 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 SP1. The Component Checker tool is designed to help you determine installed version information and diagnose installation issues with the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC)."

Whenever you create a new grid component in Alpha Anywhere, the Grid Templates Genie pops up, which lets you select one of several pre-defined templates or a template from your own library of templates.Templates can be a great time saver because you can pre-set a multitude of properties whenever you create a new component. This [video] demonstrates how you can use existing templates, and how you can define your own templates.

- Sets - Linking on Multiple Fields
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/Set/Sets Linking on Multiple Fields.xml
When you create a set, Alpha Anywhere allows you to specify that the link is based on multiple field.
Originally you could only base the link on a single field, or an expression. However, if you based the link on an expression (e.g. alltrim(lastname) + alltrim(firstname)), you could not enter new records because Alpha Anywhere had no way of knowing how to decode the expression to fill in the individual linking fields.
