Hello,

I have a datagridview.  If the user is editing a row and then clicks to another control when they return to the same row then any changes they make are rejected i.e if the change a value it immediately changes back to the value prior to moving from the row,  If they click to another row and then return to the original then they are able to edit it normally.

Please could anyone explain this and suggest a solution.

Thanks

You might have an event procedure that brings back the original value.

The first that comes to my mind is RowValidating that is usually used for such a purpose.

But there are so many events in that control that it can be another of them.

Thanks, your suggestion has pointed me in the right direction.  It turned out to be in the cell validating event.  I'd managed to include some code which was not assigned to a given cell index,.  I moved this and it works fine.

Thanks again.
