I have a grid with many columns. One column, however, has unique values. Is there any way of programmatically selecting the row corresponding to a value of 10, for example, without checking the contents of every cell in the column?  The grid is unbound.

Maybe use MyTable.PrimaryKey.IndexOf   ... but how?

If you only want to show that one record, you can use a DataView to filter the results based on a column value.

Actually what I'd like to do is update that one record...but if I have a table with 1000 records, and if it's the last row in the table, I'd rather not waste time by writing a routine to fine the record myself. I was hoping there was some "built in" way of doing it. With the Janus Grid, for example, there's a Find function that takes a value and a column as arguments.

You can do that with the DataView:

    Private Sub UpdateRecord(ByVal dt As DataTable, ByVal id As Integer, ByVal ParamArray updateValsGoHere() As Object)
        Dim dv As New DataView(dt)

        dv.Sort = "pk_column_name"
        Dim rowIndex As Integer = dv.Find(id)
        If rowIndex < 0 Or rowIndex >= dt.Rows.Count Then
            ' The record wasn't found
        Else
            Dim dataRow As DataRow = dt.Rows(rowIndex)
            ' Do your update here using "dataRow", and be
            ' sure to call Update() on the data adapter
            ' to propogate the changes back to the database
        End If
    End Sub
