I am trying to figure out the best Event to use in a DataGridView to determine what cell the cursor is in at the point of hitting the enter/return key.

What I am doing is reading a Digital Multimeter and retrieving a decimal value. The cell at which I am in upon hitting the enter/return key needs to contain that decimal value from the DMM. Hence, the processing needs to go in that event.

Either CellStateChanged or CellValidating should serve.

I think you need the KeyPress event.
