[Data Grid] Duplicate large amount of rows

I would be careful with using arrays this way. I seem to recall in the command reference that combining an array will delete duplicate keys. As long as your keys are all unique you should be safe, but I would check the command reference for the join function you are using. 

I quote:

So you see, this does not exactly add all the records of one array to another. It depends on the keys in both arrays being globally unique.
