I have a issues dealing with a comboBox cell in a datagrid view.   It works fine on the first drop drop down selection but errors out on all other rows drop down selections.

I need the drop down box which is the second column to referance the first column in each row in order to retrieve the proper combobox item list which is generated from an SQL query.

After once the second combobox calls the drop down event I get the following error

"DataGridViewComboBoxCell value is not valid"

any help pointing me in the right direction would help.

ok I got it to work.

Here is what I did

I created an array of Datasets and an array of data tables.
then I assigned the array demention equal to that of the row in the datagridview. This way each and ever combobox in the datagridview can have its own dataset and table.

I am guessing the reason I was getting the errors was the fact that the actual datasource linked to the first combobox was being cleared or changed and therefore became a null dataset for that row.
row = dataGridView1.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
            if (dataGridView1.Rows[row].Cells[0].Value != null)
            {
                myItem = dataGridView1.Rows[row].Cells[0].Value.ToString();
                myItem = "Select Test_Name from Specification_Tests where Parent_Item = '" + myItem + "' and Test_Type <> 'STANDARD'";
            }
            SqlConnection GetTests = new SqlConnection(GetItem.MyConn);
            GetTests.Open();
            DataSet[] DSGetTests = new DataSet[100];
            DSGetTests[row] = new DataSet();
            DataTable[] MyTable = new DataTable[100];
            SqlCommand SqlGetTests = new SqlCommand(myItem, GetTests);
            SqlGetTests.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
            SqlDataAdapter AdapterGetTests = new SqlDataAdapter(SqlGetTests);            
            DataTable TableGetTests = new DataTable();
            TableGetTests.Locale = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;
            AdapterGetTests.Fill(DSGetTests[row]);
            MyTable[row] = new DataTable();
            MyTable[row] = DSGetTests[row].Tables[0];
            if (MyTable[row].Rows.Count > 0)
            {
                ItemTest.DataSource = bindingSource1;
                bindingSource1.DataSource = MyTable[row];
                ItemTest.ValueMember = "Test_Name";
                ItemTest.DisplayMember = ItemTest.ValueMember;
            }
            GetTests.Close();
