Thanks once again. The  GetDataOfIndex  was the function I needed.

Unfortunately I am trying to learn data grids the way I learned the  
rest of RunRev, by applying the "Necessity is the mother of discovery"  
There are too many bits and pieces of the data grid control for this.  
I need to exercise the discipline to go through your excellent  
tutorials. Sounds like a new year's resolution to me.
