Thanks Trevor for your reply.
Indeed I want different data grid on each card.
The trouble I have is with "create card".
On my preceding stacks, when I do "create card" I get, as expected, the background group of fields and buttons but I don't get the data grid.
In other word the data grid does not behave like a background so that I can add a new one (copying the data grid of a current card on the new one makes the trick: I get a data grid with a new ID number, and I can populate it differently than the others.

But on the stack I am building now, when I "create card", the data grid of the current card appears on the new card, and it has the same ID number as the preceding card. I can't delete it without deleting those of the other cards. So that I can't creata a new data grid!

In other words, in this stack the data grid behaves like a background group (which was not the case in my preceding stacks)

I am really stuck with that as I don't understand what I am doing wrong. Is something badly set ?
