You will find the docs  from Trevor DeVore at this address :

As for your first question : if you have a list (lines of items  
separated by tab) in a variable (say tVar) or in a field (say fld  
then you can code :
set the dgText of group "data grid 1" to field "thisList"
set the dgText of group "data grid 1" to tVar

Best regards from Grenoble
