Need to compare two datagrids

Hi Skip,

If it would make it easier (as in "doable"), why not put the dgText of 
the data grids into variables and work with the data in that form? 
That's probably what I would do. Then update each data grid with its 
updated dgText list at the end.

Or if you're an "array person" you might prefer getting the dgData of 
each grid and working with those.
