I'd like to make one of the columns in a datagrid into a combobox which does a lookup so the user can pick values from one column from another table than the datagrid pulls from. Is this possible? If so, can you provide an example. TY.

Set the columnType to DataGridViewComboBoxColumn.  You can then populate the control like you would any other combobox by adding to the items collection

comboColumn.items.add
