"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not possible. The expression parser behind the Expression property is simple and not extensible. Making arbitrary function calls is not one of its capabilities. There are several ways to work around this, especially ones that don't require an expensive reflection lookup. Consider the DataTable.RowChanged event for example.

Here is sample code for that:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        private DataGridView dataGridView1;
        private Button button1;
        private DataTable dataTable = null;
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            InitializeDataTable();
        }

        private void InitializeDataTable()
        {
            dataTable = new DataTable();
            DataColumn colFromDate = new DataColumn("FromDate", typeof(DateTime));
            DataColumn colToDate = new DataColumn("ToDate", typeof(DateTime));
            DataColumn colDateDiff = new DataColumn("DateDiff", typeof(string));
            dataTable.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[] { colFromDate, colToDate, colDateDiff });
            dataTable.RowChanged += dataTable_RowChanged;

            for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
            {
                DateTime fromDate=DateTime.Now.AddYears(i);
                DateTime toDate= fromDate.AddDays(i);
                dataTable.Rows.Add(fromDate, toDate);

            this.button1.TabIndex = 1;
            this.button1.Text = "button1";
            this.button1.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
            this.button1.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.button1_Click);
