My DataGridView1 has 6 column fields.  One column, uProject, has Visible set to False.  

How do I assign a value to that field.  The value is not dependent on any other field.  It is a program generated unique sequential number.  Something like: uProject = LastProject + 1.

All of the other column fields for the Row are entered by the user.

I assume that you are talking about entering data for a new record.  If so, you can set the value of any column, whether visible or not as follows in DataGridView1's RowLeave event handler by doing:

DataGridView1.Item(columnIndex, DataGridView1.CurrentRow.Index).Value = uProject

or

DataGridView1.Item("columnName", DataGridView1.CurrentRow.Index).Value = uProject
