This almost works.  Except that the field is left in a strange state after
exiting the field. 
The focus rectangle is still around the field and I no longer need to
double-click to get into that row's column to edit it.  I can enter it
with a single click.
When I exit the field, I want to set the field back so that I need to
double-click to edit.

Thanks so far for all the help.
