Try this. It takes the following params: ID of the datagrid, the number of rows in the header, the number of rows in the footer, the column numbers of the cells you're interested in.

For the grid above , use it as iterate("MyDataGrid", 1, 1, 4, 3) to pick up the lastnam & firstname from all rows except the first and last. It simply prints the data, but I guess you have bigger plans for the data :-)

      function iterate(id, hdrSize, ftrSize) {
            // We have to have the right niumber of args
            if (arguments.length <= 3)
                  return;

            // Get the datagrid object in the DOM
            var grid;
            if (window.document.getElementById != null) {
                  grid = window.document.getElementById(id);
            } else if (window.document.all != null) {
                  grid = window.document.all(id);
            }

            // Identify the interesting part of the table
            var firstRow = 0;
            if (hdrSize && hdrSize > 0)
                  firstRow = hdrSize;

            var lastRow = grid.rows.length - 1;
            if (ftrSize && ftrSize > 0)
                  lastRow -= ftrSize;
            if (lastRow < 0 || lastRow > grid.rows.length)
                  return;

            // this is to xstore the strings ...
            var returnString = "";

            // Process rows
            var iX, iY;
            var row;
            for (var iX=firstRow; iX<lastRow; iX++) {
                  row = grid.rows[iX];
                  // Process cells
                  for (iY=3; iY<arguments.length; iY++) {
                        var cellX = arguments[iY];
                     var cell = row.cells[cellX];
                        returnString += cell.textContent;
                  }
                  returnString += "\n";
            }
            alert(returnString);
      }

Whenever any tabular data are displayed on a page, it is possible to iterate through them using JS. However, the exeact implementation depends on where the component came from. Which DataGrid are you using? Something MS created? From JSF? You see the source of the component determines the exact markup that's displayed. If you could paste the generated source of the datagrid, it would help identify what to access.
