what do you mean by original value,

if you mean the top and left values for the grid, then its because the left and top for the Cell, is the values from the top/left of the grid.

|           |<Cell.Left>#Cell#

as my stunning picture shows(sort of)

Gordon is right, the value for the cell is the distance from the top of the grid and not the distance from the top of the form.  Where as the whole grid is from the top of the form.
