I am using a sql statement to fill a dataset which I use as a data source for a grid.  There are 2 columns, seq_no, product.  The product column I would like to be a combobox which has the selected value property assigned by what is returned from the query. the combobox values list I will populate another way.  If i use something like:
dim dt as data table
dim ds as dataset
 ds1 = FillGrid1()
        dt = ds1.Tables(0)
        With DataGrid1
            .DataSource = dt
        End With
(where FillGrid1 is a function that passes a dataset filled with the results of the query)

How do I turn the "product"  column into a combobox?

Thank you for the input.  There are 46 pages in that FAQ.  It is informative and it may lead to the solution, some day.  I have to read it, set up a little test and when I get it right copy it into my program.  That is fair but not what I was hoping for.  What I would like to have is something I can relate to the specific problem I put in my question, a code snippet I can plug in test, tweek a little but not research it too much.
I know you have the knowledge but I need it applied to my problem unless you have a faq with examples included.

I originally got a C. Where can I see what is the grade now?

We always increase by one level. There isn't any place you can actually see it though; I can send you a screen shot if you like.

The C was a mistake on my part.  The B was what I intended.  I am truly sorry if that offended you as I have gotten numerous questions answered in the past.  Some by you.  It is not my mission in life to insult anyone and especially not you.  If you feel that this is what has happened, let me know and I will see what I can do about it.  In this instance, I was hoping for a code snippet or something that I did not have to study a faq to get.  That was lazy on my part and I did not spend much time to compose  the question to offer a better chance to get what I was looking for.

>>If you feel that this is what has happened

I do not feel insulted. I just wanted to know what was the new grade since it is not visible on this question.

>>I was hoping for a code snippet

I think the link provide a better answer then a code snippet. It has a complete sample (in both VB and C#)
