Newbie Data Grid question

I noticed that the column headings aren't automatically set when you load
the datagrid with data. I manually set the column names and then when I
loaded the data in (using a different method with ) I put in the column
headings exactly as I had manually named them. It turned out that later,
when taking data out of the datagrid, I did it using those column headings.

I was surprised that when you load the data grid it doesn't change the
column headings. But it works perfectly otherwise.
