Hi Experts,

I'm sorry I thought I had this sorted but when I came to put all the snipets of code together that I received from other questions it went badly wrong so I really need to go from scratch to get my head round this as I'm pretty new to vb.net and would like to do some more advanced coding. Well advanced for me at the moment.

My question is that I have a datagridview with a column called description which is set as a text box and a combobox called quantity.

The quantity combobox is populated from a variable depending on the quanity set. Lets say I want the grid to look something like this: -

row 1: -

Text box says: "Trousers" combobox has the data:       "1"
                                          "2"
                                          "3"
                                          "4"
                                          "5"
                                          "6"

row 2: -

Text box says: "Shirt" combobox has the data:             "1"
                                          "2"
                                          "3"

row 3: -

Text box says: "Shirt" combobox has the data:             "1"
                                          "2"

Once the datagrid view is populated it will need to show the last number of each combobox as default in the combobox. ie,

row 1 : 6
row 2 : 3
row 3 : 2

How would I code this please. I'm sure when I get the jist of how they work it just a case of getting a complete example.

I would apprectaite your help.
