Hi Dave;

That all depends if the database value can have a null as its value.
'' You can use something like this to markup all values in a single column
'' Where the value can have a database NULL in it and the data type of the db is set to money.
For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.RowCount - 1
    Dim value As Decimal = IIf(IsDBNull(DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("Freight").Value), 0, DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("Freight").Value * 1.2)
    DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("Freight").Value = value
Next

'' Or you can use this if the column can't be a database NULL
For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.RowCount - 1
    DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("Freight").Value *= 1.2
Next

The column is visible.

I tried everything I can think of and keep getting this error:
System.ArgumentException was unhandled
  Message="Column named FixtureUpgradePrice cannot be found.
Parameter name: columnName"
  ParamName="columnName"
  Source="System.Windows.Forms"

Any ideas?

Hi Dave;

According to the error message the column FixtureUpgradePrice cannot be found and is most likely due to a spelling error or capitalization does not match that which is set for the column.

So this is the code you should be using because database NULL can be in the column. You need to verify the column name being used in the statement.
For i As Integer = 0 To DataGridView1.RowCount - 1
    Dim value As Decimal = IIf(IsDBNull(DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("FixtureUpgradePrice").Value), 0, DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("FixtureUpgradePrice").Value * 1.2)
    DataGridView1.Rows(i).Cells("FixtureUpgradePrice").Value = value
Next
