[HELP] Facing a datagrid bug

I am going to say that there are characters in the text that Livecode does not expect. But I am guessing. You can try a divide and conquer approach to test this. Start by creating two globals. Put half the data into one global and half the data into the other. Populate the dataGrid with one half, try to sort. If it fails, divide that in two. Rinse and repeat. 

Eventually and before too long you are wither going to find out what the offending data is, or the problem will persist proving that it isn't an odd character in the data. 

Also, would you mind sending me a stack with the datagrid complete with the data? Let's see what happens here. If it's reproducible, it's pandemic. If not, it's local.
