Try DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Cells(0).Value

If you want to select the row (with the arrow on the left column) you can do this:

        Dim col As Integer = 2
        Me.DataGridView1.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridView1(0, col)

Open in new window

I think I did not explain exactly what I need.  

I need the value of cell zero on the row on which the arrow is currently pointing.  I do not need to select the row.

Thank you
