Thank you, Zryip theSlug.Your diagnosis was correct. Somehow, the template
had gone missing; perhaps that happened when I created the datagrid by

Following the path described by Kevin in the YouTube lesson on adding
images to a datagrid did not work -- even after I created a new dg which
actually had a template. After replacing the template field with a blank
button, etc., the script broke, unable to find the button. So, apparently,
I put it in the wrong group. More research required.

 Due to time constraints, I faked it instead, using images overlayed on the
column. So, I look forward to figuring this out.
