Set DataGrid.Columns(n).Button = True

Then

Private Sub DataGrid1_BeforeColEdit(ByVal ColIndex As Integer, ByVal KeyAscii As Integer, Cancel As Integer)
' BeforeColEdit is called before the grid enters into
    ' edit mode.  You can decide what happens and whether
    ' standard editing proceeds.  This allows you to
    ' substitute different kinds of editing for the current
    ' cell, as is done here.

    If ColIndex = n Then
        ' Let the user edit by entering a key.
        If KeyAscii <> 0 Then Exit Sub
       
        ' Otherwise, cancel built-in editing and call the
        ' ButtonClick event to drop down list1.
        Cancel = True
        DataGrid1_ButtonClick (ColIndex)
    End If
 End Sub

Private Sub DataGrid1_ButtonClick(ByVal ColIndex As Integer)
 ' Assign the Column object to Co because it will be used
    ' more than once.
    Dim Co As Column
     
    Set Co = DataGrid1.Columns(ColIndex)
     
    ' Position and drop down list1 at the right edge of the
    ' current cell.
    List1.Left = DataGrid1.Left + Co.Left + Co.Width
    List1.Top = DataGrid1.Top + DataGrid1.RowTop(DataGrid1.Row)
    List1.Visible = True
    List1.ZOrder 0
    List1.SetFocus

End Sub
Private Sub DataGrid1_Scroll(Cancel As Integer)
 ' Hide the list if we scroll.
    List1.Visible = False

End Sub

Should get you started.
