Hi Roger,

In fact you have to create the columns first as it was discussed in this
interesting tread:

you have to create a column "State" and a column "Code" in your grid and
then you could populate it with the code you pick in the doc.

Use the dgText[true] when you import data from a text file for example and
if you would like to avoid to import the first line of the text if it
represents the column headers.

If you use set the dgText [ firstLineContainsColumnNames ] of group
"DataGrid 1" to theText, you will obtain in the Grid:

State         Code
state          code

If you use set the dgText of group "DataGrid 1" to theText, the Grid will

State         Code
