Are you working with Web or Windows desktop objects?

OK! :)  What version of Visual Studio are you using? and what version of .NET?  I ask this in particular because .NET 3.0 restored DataGrid to the .NET Framework and it will remain there for a while (I'm looking at docs for the .NET 3.5 DataGrid in one of my other windows).

That said,

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171628(VS.80).aspx

discusses the differences between the DataGrid and DataGridView objects on Windows.  Though I haven't seen it specifically mentioned, it looks to me as if TableStyle has gone the way of the Great Auk.  This article does specifically mention that while one DataGrid can be used to display two tables in a hierarchical relationship, two DataGridViews would be required to do the same.

We may still be able to get the special effects you want using the CellFormatting event.  Here, you can inspect DataSource and DataMember names to give special behaviors to specific tables and to specific columns in those tables if necessary.  What else do you need to do that was being done for you by setting TableStyles?
