Apologies for the noob question. I have the custom form module to create whizbang custom forms but wondered how one would make that data useful by displaying it in the CMS - either in a grid or other format. Is there a module that I can use to bind existing data to controls on a form? Or is this something best left to a php guru?

Have you seen the userforms extension? For that I wanted to make it a grid but the issue is with the custom length of forms its a wee bit hard to get it right. Currently it just lists all the submissions and all the fields in 1 big dump, not ideal but it works for now. If you want to see how it does it have a look at the templates. Still debating with myself over a nicer reports view I was thinking maybe even a ModelAdmin interface.

Cool, thanks I'll take a look and comment. Perhaps I can potter with the templates. I think I really should get into php sometime whichever way.
