I think you have to get the array corresponding to the row, change the value for the key corresponding to the cell, then set it back again. 

put the dgDataOfIndex [ pIndex ] of group "DataGrid" into pDataA
put "This is new data" into pDataA[ "newdata" ]
set the dgDataOfIndex [ pIndex ] of group "DataGrid" to pDataA

You can substitute Index with Row if that is what you are working with.

I know which row needs to change, but I don't have that row highlighted. As far as I can see all the examples in the documentation assume you have the row highlighted.
