Question 1
I am looking to right trim data in a datagrid view, when I pull text from the database it right pads spaces up to the 255 I have specified (it is free text for the user to enter).  If I RTRIM the data in SQL the column becomes read only.

Question 2
Where is a listing of cell style formats like "C" in the example below ? Is there a "P" for percent, an "S" for string etc... ?  I can find examples of using but not a list of available formats.
Example:
dataGridView.Columns["five_offinvoice"].DefaultCellStyle.Format = "C";

For trimming values in gridview follow this code-


private void dataGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.RowIndex > -1)
           {
                if (e.Value != null)
               {
                   e.Value = e.Value.ToString().Trim();
                }
           }  
      }
