Thanks Trevor, that works great.  Follow up question for you.  I have  
a datagrid table with two option menu columns in it.  It's OK to  
initialise the first one per your reply but the contents of the second  
one need to be set differently depending on the currently selected  
value in the first option menu.  Any recommendations as to how to do
