I have a small sub but I cannot see how to set the last part on the second dataview, the first has two columns the last datagrid only one so its complaining of too many arguments but not sure of the syntax.

The saving of the point works as expected

    Public Sub Reverttosaved()
        If SaveLastItemSavedAndApplyToRefreshToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then *** works

            TxtBulkShortDesc.Focus() *** works
            TxtBulkShortDesc.Text = LblLastSavedSearch.Text *** works
            SendKeys.Send("{Enter}") *** works
        ElseIf GoToLastSavedCellInGridToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then  *** works
            Me.DataGridViewStringsBulk.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridViewStringsBulk.Rows(ptCurrentCell.Y).Cells(ptCurrentCell.X)  *** works
            If CrossGridToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then Me.DataGridViewStrCommon.Rows(ptStrComCurrentCell.Y).Cells(ptStrComCurrentCell.X)  *** too many args
        End If
    End Sub

Hi Peter;

First you state that Me.DataGridViewStrCommon has only one column in it, is that correct? If it is then this line of code

Open in new window

could be written as

Open in new window

This line of code references a cell in the DataGridView but it does nothing with it. do you want to write to it or use its value?
If CrossGridToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then 

Open in new window

It would help to see the complete error message and the inner exception.

"This line of code references a cell in the DataGridView but it does nothing with it. do you want to write to it or use its value?"  this is what I had omitted to do as soon as I added that all worked fine thank you so much.

here is the final working sub for completeness.
    Public Sub Reverttosaved()
        If SaveLastItemSavedAndApplyToRefreshToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then

            TxtBulkShortDesc.Text = LblLastSavedSearch.Text
        ElseIf GoToLastSavedCellInGridToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then
            Me.DataGridViewStringsBulk.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridViewStringsBulk.Rows(ptCurrentCell.Y).Cells(ptCurrentCell.X)
            If CrossGridToolStripMenuItem.Checked = True Then Me.DataGridViewStrCommon.CurrentCell = Me.DataGridViewStrCommon.Rows(ptStrComCurrentCell.Y).Cells(ptStrComCurrentCell.X)
        End If
    End Sub
