with using
thisgrid.Rows(i).Cells("columnName").value and an excel lookup

I am able to right click on the dataGrid and click edit Excel spreadsheet for this grid.
Once I make a change to the excel spreadsheet I want the dataGrid to update immediately without having to close and reopen.

I am using .cellvaluechanged and . cellclick events

What is the procedure to do this?

You can call the code that binds the grid to rebind it.

@CodeCruiser, what do you mean? And how... The grid gets its data on the cellvaluechanged event of another tab...



 Private Sub controlEventComboBox_CellValueChanged(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles gridTab1.CellValueChanged
.
.
.

For Each thisEvent In mLookupRecords.ExcelList

                If Trim(UCase(thisEvent.ProbeEvent)) = Trim(UCase(probeEvents)) Then
                    gridTab2.Rows.Add()
                    gridTab2.Rows(gridTab2.RowCount - 1).Cells("csdnamonnumber").Value = gridTab1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("controleventmonnumber").Value
                    gridTab2.Rows(gridTab2.RowCount - 1).Cells("csProbeDescription").Value = thisEvent.Description
                End If
            Next
...

Move this code into a method. Call that method from the combobox_cellvaluechanged event as well as where you need to refresh it.
