change your database so that the field has a constraint that says it is NOT NULL. when your data grid popultes, your field will take on the same property, or at least it should.  What type of database are you using, or how are you populating the data grid?

you must set the property

column.FalseValue = "NO"
column.TrueValue = "YES"

OK, actually, change the DataGrid.DataGridTableStyle(0).GridColumnStyles(Index of CheckBoxColumn).AllowNull = False
