Umm... could you rephrase that into a question of the coherent persuasion?

Are you wanting it to save longer values?  Increase the maxlength
Are you wanting to provide your own error message?  Handle the DataError Event

If this doesn't answer your question (I'm guessing it doesn't as the above is pretty obvious) then please let me know exactly what your question is.  Or if you just need help with 'how' to accomplish one of these let me know where you're getting stuck.

I found that article by googling "datagrid maxlength".  You should be ashamed that you didn't find that on your own, just FYI ;)

problem 1 resolved

Dim dt As New DataTable
        dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("Categoryid", Type.GetType("System.String")))
        dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("categoryname", Type.GetType("System.String")))
        dt.Columns.Add(New DataColumn("description", Type.GetType("System.String")))

        'setting the max length of datacolumn "Code"
        dt.Columns("categoryname").MaxLength = 20

        'bind this datatable to datagrid
        CategoriesDataGridView.DataSource = CType(dt, DataTable)

Now what  about the picture i have a form  called products  diferent table categories diferent table why take the photo from the table  products and not from  from the table categories

First of all, there are 2 f's in different.
Secondly, slow down.  I think your brain is going a little faster than your hands are typing.

As far as I can tell your question is "Why take the photo from the table products and not from the table categories?"  Now if you went up to some random programmer and asked him that question do you really expect that he would have a clue as to what you're talking about?

Just FYI, I probably won't get to posting again until after 5pm central time.
