You can use ColumnName or ColumnIndex to access a Cell on a DataRowView.

But .... Note that  AutoGenerated  Column Names for DataGridView take names like:
 
   DataGridViewTextBoxColumn1 ...

I use DataColumn.Index to allow refactoring.

If you have a collumn named DataGridViewTextBoxColumn1 and you rename it to OrderIdCol using Ide Refactoring option, then

Any sentence like
   Dgv.Rows(n).cells(DataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Index).Value    is ajusted to
   Dgv.Rows(n).cells(OrderIdCol.Index).Value

Also you can find any line that uses OrderIdCol with refactoring.

I never use Strings to access DataGridviewColumns.  I like Refactoring options.
