I have a DataGridView ComboBox column where I have to programatically
change the value using the following code but I am getting the error shown in the image even though the value is the same as one of the ComboBox items

DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(intColumn - 1).Value = strValue

You are getting that error because the datagridviewcombobox has not got an item of that value.
Handle the DataError event of the datagridview which will make the error go away, then try again and see if you get the value set.

thanks. I was adding the ComboBox items programatically so the item wasn't there. My mistake
