E9.2 Can we use form extensions to add field to grid not in the underlying tables.

I thought I had seen some sort of presentation in the past that showed/talked about adding a calculated column to a grid using a form extension, but we were on an older tools release and couldn't do it yet. My memory may have a wishful thinking filter on it, so I wanted to see if anybody knows whether I should be able to do this or not.

We recently applied Tools which got us Logic Extensions. I wanted to see if I could replace a modification to a vanilla application with a form extension. It seems simple enough to create a Logic Extension to do the calculation and attach it to an event on the form. However, I don't see a way to add a field to the grid that doesn't exist in the underlying BSVW or BSVW Tables.

Am I missing something simple? Or is it just not possible to do this yet?

Thanks Dave. I logged into Quest got a priority on both of those.
Yeah this one would be so good.
