Bonjour Rob,
I think that an empty datagrid is not editable. There is nothing to  
edit ;-)))

But, If for example your populate it with "x" then it's possible to  
edit it.
1- create a data grid
2 - put manually in the content pane "x" & tab & "x" & tab & "x"
3 - then you are able to edit the cells.

Not necessary to write some x's! only tabs are enough to create  
editable cells.

Hope this help

Best regards from Grenoble
