Reading text from a Child table window.

Reading text from a Child table window.

I have created an application that 'talks' to another one by simulating keystrokes.  I have come up against a brick wall in one area.  I have to read some text that is on a window that is a Centura:ChildTable.

There appear to be api's that let you read the column's label but not the data from the table.  For example; the window lists all of the customers  with their name, ss# and birthdate horizontally in the window.  I am trying to see if customer Smith is on the window.  If not, I will page down till I find him.
I am unable to find an API that will let me read the name of the individual customers in the table.  

Is this possible with the API's.
