I'm guessing the error is coming from this line:
dAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters["@cid"].Value = clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue;

The error is telling you that the object passed to the Value property did not implement the interface System.IConvertible. In other words, it couldn't be "converted" to a satisfactory String representation. The SelectedValue property returned a DataViewRow. Maybe use clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue.Value?

if i change that line to
dAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters["@cid"].Value = Convert.ToInt32clNamecomboBox.SelectedValue);
i'm still getting the error.
cid  is an integer in database

I have changed the order to
clNamecomboBox.DisplayMember = "client";
                clNamecomboBox.ValueMember = "id";
                clNamecomboBox.DataSource = bSource;
then I got it right
