I have a datagrid view with 8 columns.  The user selects a datarow from the table.  How do I send the cell from column2 in the selected datarow to List<string>?  Also, I want to add unique data to the List, thus if "x" already exists in the list, it will not add it again.

1. You can access the SelectedRow, and then the Cell.
2. You have to use the Contains method of a list

    ArrayList li = new ArrayList();
    DataGridView DataGridView1 = new DataGridView();
    if (DataGridView1.SelectedRows.Count > 0) {
        string value = DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Cells("Column2").Value;
        // Replace Column2 with the name of your second column
        if (!li.Contains(value)) li.Add(value); //add the value if is not yet in the list
    }

string value = DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Cells("Column2").Value;
Please note the type correction:  brackets instead of parentheses
string value = DataGridView1.SelectedRows[0].Cells["Column2"].Value;
