Picture something like Filemaker's data import dialog, where you can drag fields from the source and destination into a "merge table" and define the action by clicking a center column. That is what I am working on.

Bonjour Bob,

If you don't know it, you could catch a glance to "Experiment 015 - Drag & drop^in DG" from TheSlug here on his site:


under "Experiments 012 to 016: Datagrids experiments"

Seems possible to modify the scripts in order to drag only one value of a row of a Dg and drop it onto another Dg.

Sure TheSlug would know how to do that far better than me ;-))

Best regards from Grenoble
