The CellValidating event with the e.Cancel = True forces the user to enter something

ok, then you have to loop on each item in the datagridview

Like:

    Function ValidColumn() As Boolean
        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In Me.DataGridView1.Rows
 
            If Not row.IsNewRow Then
 
                Dim dt As DateTime
                If row.Cells(3).Value IsNot DBNull.Value AndAlso Not Date.TryParse(row.Cells(3).Value, dt) Then
                    Return False
                End If
 
            End If
        Next
 
        Return True
    End Function
 
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Not ValidColumn() Then
            Stop ' Not valid
        End If
    End Sub

Assuming your validating the 3rd column of the datagridview, use the below code which uses the RowValidating event

Private Sub DataGridView1_RowValidating(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellCancelEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.RowValidating
        If Not DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).IsNewRow Then
            Dim c As DataGridViewCell = DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(2)
            If IsDBNull(c.Value) Or c.Value = "" Then
                c.ErrorText = "Cell cannot be empty" ' or msgbox("Cell cannot be empty") as u prefer
                e.Cancel = True
            Else
                c.ErrorText = ""
                e.Cancel = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
