The DG is in a substack of the splash (main) stack. The field data saves just fine.

Subject: Re: Saving datagrids
If you mean that the datagrid is in the mainstack of the standalone, I think you
will find that NO data ANYWHERE is saved in that stack. The mainstack becomes a
part of the standalone, and as such is read only. No way around this. Not for
LiveCode standalones, not for Microsoft Word docs (if they were made into
standalones that is).
The ONLY way to have data in a stack persistent between standalone sessions is
to make the stack either a substack of some other mainstack (like a splash
stack) or else a supporting file, in which case it will get put in a folder
inside the standalone bundle (for mac) and I don't know where Windows will put
it, but the upshot is, the standalone will act like a runtime engine when it
opens your now editable substack.
