Thanks,

DataGridView1.Columns(1).DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Red
DataGridView1.Columns(1).DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Blue

You can use the name of the column instead of its index if you prefer so:

DataGridView1.Columns("Name").DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Red
DataGridView1.Columns("Name").DefaultCellStyle.ForeColor = Color.Blue

Hi,

Sorry for not being clear, I meant the column's header.

Thanks,
