Datagridview cell


I have a timesheet datagridview, when the user clicks on a cell in the description column, it opens a new form with a series of predefined sentences, such as (report,inspection,study,meeting). When the user double clicks a choice it closes the form and enters the choice in the selected datagridview cell.

One of the choices is "Other : " 
I'd like that when the user chooses that choice, it copies "Other : " into the cell, but also leaves it active so that the user can continue typing after the words "Other : " explaining what he/she did
I know how to copy the value in to the cell, but making the cell with the cursor active so that the user can continue typing after the words "Other : " I don't know how to do

"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.

I don't do Windows Forms and DataGridView much, so this might take a bit.  What I feel, is that you need to do this in the EditingControlShowing.
