the error occurred because the value cannot be found in your DataGridViewComboBox.

to can handle it like this in DataGridView's DataError event:

Private Sub DataGridView1_DataError(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DataError
        If e.Exception.Message = "DataGridViewComboBoxCell value is not valid." Then
            Dim dg As DataGridView = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView)
            Dim v As String = dg.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(e.ColumnIndex).Value.ToString
            Dim c As DataGridViewComboBoxColumn = dg.Columns(e.ColumnIndex)
            If c.Items.Contains(v) = False Then
                e.ThrowException = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
