Thanks Pete. I did something very similar to that (although I didn't use
the message box to make a copy--how would I do that by the way?) I ended up
copying the group from the first data grid's row template over to the second
data grid... After playing around with it, I then did modified the
dgProps["Row Template]" of the new data grid and that did the trick...

Here's one way to do this,there may be others.
Both datagrids will have the dgProps["row template"] property set to the
same group and card of the Datagrid Templates stack. Locate that card and
use the message box to make a copy of it in the Datagrid Templates stack.
Make a note of the Row Template group ID and card id of the new card, then
change the dgProps["Row Template"] property of the second datagrid to refer
to the new group/card. At that point, you can modify the second datagrid's
template as you wish without affecting the first datagrid.
Hope that helps,
