Can you show your table structure ???

Field Datatype
vr_no int
. .
. .
. .

because my guess is that you are getting "Nothing" in "mydataa" and to check this, first i need to know the structure of table to help you.

1 bill_no int 4 1
0 s_no varchar 6 1
0 item_name varchar 20 1
0 qty varchar 6 1
0 price float 8 1
0 discount float 8 1
0 d_price float 8 1
0 perqty float 8 1
0 total float 8 1
0 party_name varchar 20 1

If I understood correctly that you are willing to create two columns in DataGridView and in first column you have a ComboBox, from the seletcion of ComboBox item, you want to populate the 2nd column(TextBox Column) of DatagridView ??? Am I right ???

Hi! I came up with a possible code:

I created a table "tblA" having column "ID as Number" and "Text as String".
"ID" in datagridview is ComboBoxColumn and "Text" in datagridview is TextBoxColumn.

Select a value in ComboBoxColumn and "PRESS Enter".

I didn't find any suitable event to raise when a ComboBoxColumn value is updated. so I put it in Cell_EndEdit which "nearly" works according to your need.

YOUR TASK IS TO FIND THAT PARTICULAR EVENT and call method CallUpdate() within that event

Private cmbo As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()
Private tbCol As New DataGridViewTextBoxColumn()
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
	dataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = False
	Dim con As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\test.mdb")
	Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand("Select * from tblA", con)
	Dim rdr As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
	Dim list As IList(Of String) = New List(Of String)()
	While rdr.Read()
	End While
	cmbo.DataSource = list
End Sub

Private Sub dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs)
End Sub

Public Sub CallUpdate()
	Dim con As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\Shahan\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\TestDB\TestDB\test.mdb")
	For Each row As DataGridViewRow In dataGridView1.Rows
		Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand("Select Text from tblA where ID=" & Convert.ToInt32(row.Cells(0).Value), con)
		Dim val As Object = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
		row.Cells(1).Value = val
End Sub
