You need to use Expression property of the column.

Find an example here:

I look for already available values in the table are correct or not. That should be entered by user. If not I need to throw validation message. Kindly suggest solution.

You can use a foreach loop and loop through all the DataRows

Lets assume you cols in the table are 3,4,5

bool validationFailed = true;

foreach{DataRow row in dt.Rows) {

    if(row[5] != row[4] / row[3]) {
        validationFailed = false;
    }
}

Now you can give a validation message. If you need a dynamic column name resolition the loop through the dt.Columns array and get the indexes of the columns from there.
