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

Not sure what the source of your data is but if it's coming from a  
database, maybe you could have the db do the calculation for you when  
it retrieves the data.  I'm using sqlite and have found it to be  
lightning fast at calculations while retrieving data, so maybe  
something like "SELECT columnA + columnB as Total, columnA, columnB  
FROM ,tablename>...."
