As per the Form Design Aid guide:

Was Grid Cell Value Entered

This system function returns a nonzero value if a specific grid cell has been changed since last time this system function is called. Row is taken from the current context.

Parameters

Grid - Input, required. The grid FC to affect.
Column - Input, required. The column containing the grid cell to check. Set the parameter to an applicable object (GC grid column) from the object list or <All Columns>.
Return To - Input, required. The object to which to assign the return value that designates whether the cell or node has changed. Set the parameter to an applicable object from the object list.

This system function returns one of these values to the object identified by Row:
0 - The cell has not changed since the last check.
1 - The cell has changed since the last check.

 

When the function is called with for specific column, it works properly and returns a value of 1 when the column value changes, however, when it is called with the <All Columns> parameter, it does not work. The value remains a 0.
