A new grid control for Finance and Operations apps is available for public preview starting in 10.0.9 / Platform update 33. This includes the replacement grid control featuring faster rendering, smoother scrolling (due to more aggressive pre-loading of data), and improved handling of larger datasets. There are no plans to adjust the infinite scrolling behavior of grids in Finance and Operations apps (this is required since the size of the full dataset is often unknown); however, the new grid does provide positional scrolling within the data that has been loaded on the client.

Additional capabilities that are included with the new grid include totals, grouping, and fast data entry. Fast data entry includes the ability to paste a table (rows and columns) from Excel starting in a single cell of the grid. The ability to freeze (pin) columns is also being targeted with the new grid. Programmatic formatting of cells can be achieved using the displayOption() API. If there are extra capabilities in this space, please log a separate suggestion in the Ideas portal describing those.

Note that not all the capabilities described in this suggestion are currently planned (see the list below). These should be logged individually as other suggestions for tracking.

Items from this suggestion that are not currently planned:
- Developer APIs to control page size and number of pages to load ahead of time
- Wrapped headers
- Ability to show generic hierarchical data in a grid
- Excel-like fill-down capabilities
