In the current version of the data grid setting the columns property  
doesn't map the previous columns to the new columns. That is being  
considered though. o rename a column use:

set the dgColumnName[OLD_NAME] of group "Data Grid" to NEW_NAME

You can read up on column props here:


Scroll down to the Column Properties section.
