I am not sure whether that is possible.
When I popped together the EXTRACTOR stack I expected to have a script
of this sort:
put column "VEGETABLES" of dataGrid "FOOD" into fld "VEGGIES"
put the lines of column "VEGETABLES" of dataGrid "FOOD" into the lines
of fld "VEGGIES"
but that was because I have paid almost no attention to datagrids (more
and did not realise that they are not really objects in the sense that
fields are, but are
composite creatures, and their components have to be addressed rather
dataGrid as a whole.
The thing that shocked me was that on looking at the Preferences palette
dataGrid I saw it called a 'group' . . . and things went badly downhill
