You can use the CellValidating event of the grid, and if the validation fails, set e.Cancel = true to stay in that cell

Thank you for your answer, however

Sorry, but the answer does not give me enough detail.  I am not that familiar with Vb.Net and would like a more detailed example of the events and the code.
