This is rough but sort of works...
set the itemDel to tab
put word 2 of the selectedLine into tRow
put word 2 of the selectedChunk into nChar
put length(line 1 to tRow-1 of me) into tStart
put char tStart+2 to nChar of me into tText
put the number of items in tText into tCol

Ah Bob. You misunderstand. We are asking in reference to the table field, not DG. Finding the index in data grid is very easy indeed. In a table field, it so much as I was to understand. But apparently there is some magic I’ve missed somewhere and perhaps I’m the only one. Do you know what it is?

>> Thanks for the heads up about Bernd’s code. But I was interested in learning how to get the cell index of a table field when clicked as we are told it was solved a ‘long time’ ago. That makes it seem that it is general knowledge and I’m a dunce for not being aware of it (which is very possible). If you’ve got any pointers you know of that can steer me right I’d appreciate it.
