Hi all,
I have a datagridview in which I add programatically a combobox column with its datasource set to a datatable I fill from a query, then I populate manually (for good reasons) the DGV, but just when I try to add the first row, this error shows up:

Fielld called 'Unidad' does not exist.

Here is the code where I add the combobox column:

unidadDataSet = New DataSet()
query = "select idUnidad,Unidad from catUnidades order by Unidad"
conn = New SqlConnection(connectionString) : conn.Open()
cmd = New SqlCommand(query, conn)

unidadDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter
        unidadDataAdapter.SelectCommand = cmd
        unidadDataAdapter.Fill(unidadDataSet)
        With unidadesColumn
            .DataPropertyName = "catUnidades"
            .HeaderText = "UNIT"
            .Width = 80
            .DataSource = unidadDataSet
            .ValueMember = "idUnidad"
            .DisplayMember = "Unidad"
            .Visible = False
        End With
        ReqProdGridView.Columns.Add(unidadesColumn)
        conn.Close()

and here is where I try to add a a row to the ReqProdGridView:

ReqProdGridView.Rows.Clear()
        i = 0
        Try
            query = "select Parte,DescripcionParte,NumeroMaterialProveedor,Precio,Cantidad " & _
            "from detRequisicionesPO dR,db_owner.catpartes CP,catDescripcionesParte DP,relproveedormaterial PM " & _
            "where DR.idparte = CP.idparte and CP.idDescripcionParte = DP.idDescripcionParte " & _
            "and CP.Parte = PM.NumeroMaterial and idProveedor = " & vendorID & " and idrequisicionPO = " & idReq
            conn = New SqlConnection(connectionString) : conn.Open()
            cmd = New SqlCommand(query, conn)
            dr = cmd.ExecuteReader
            If dr.HasRows Then
                While dr.Read
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows.Add()
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows(i).Cells(0).Value = dr.GetString(dr.GetOrdinal("Parte"))
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows(i).Cells(1).Value = dr.GetString(dr.GetOrdinal("DescripcionParte"))
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows(i).Cells(2).Value = dr.GetString(dr.GetOrdinal("NumeroMaterialProveedor"))
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows(i).Cells(3).Value = dr.GetDouble(dr.GetOrdinal("Precio"))
                    ReqProdGridView.Rows(i).Cells(4).Value = dr.GetInt32(dr.GetOrdinal("Cantidad"))
                    i = i + 1
                End While
            End If
            dr.Close() : conn.Close()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message, MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "Error")
        End Try

Could someone help me out?

Thanks in advance

Yes, of course. The field exists on my table and so, I pass the query to the datatable object.

But when adding a row, the error message shows up.

Will that mean that I must fill the combobox column with data after I added all rows I need in my datagridview?

select Parte,DescripcionParte,NumeroMaterialProveedor,Precio,Cantidad " & _            "from detRequisicionesPO dR,db_owner.catpartes CP,catDescripcionesParte DP,relproveedormaterial PM " & _            "where DR.idparte = CP.idparte and CP.idDescripcionParte = DP.idDescripcionParte " & _            "and CP.Parte = PM.NumeroMaterial and idProveedor = " & vendorID & " and idrequisicionPO = " & idReq

Your query does not have a field named unidad.
