(data grid) is there a good workaround for obtaining other column values in FillInData for a Data Grid Table?

If you didn't want to fetch all of the data for the entire row you  
could use GetDataOfIndex. GetDataOfIndex only retrieves the value of a  
specific column.

put the dgIndex of me into theIndex
set the text of field 1 of me to (GetDataOfIndex(theIndex, "Col 2") +  
GetDataOfIndex(theIndex, "Col 3"))
