        If rs.State = 1 Then rs.Close()
        rs.Open(sql, MainCon, 1, 3)
        Do While Not rs.EOF
            If Not IsDBNull(rs.Fields(0).Value) Then
                cast = rs.Fields(0).Value
            End If
            If Not IsDBNull(cast) Then
                With col_Caste
                    .Name = "Caste"
                    .HeaderText = "Caste"
                    .DataPropertyName = cast
                    .ReadOnly = False
                End With

                sql = "Select Desc from Category where Catgry = 1"
                con.ConnectionString = connstring
                If con.State = ConnectionState.Open Then con.Close()
                Dim da As OdbcDataAdapter = New OdbcDataAdapter(sql, con)
                da.Fill(ds, "Caste")

                With col_Caste
                    .Name = "Caste"
                    .HeaderText = "Caste"
                    .DataSource = ds.Tables("Caste")
                    .DisplayMember = "Desc"
                    .ReadOnly = False
                End With

            End If


To add a comboboxcolumn in a datagridview use the following:

'set up the combobox properties : 
Dim column As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn
column.DisplayStyle = DataGridViewComboBoxDisplayStyle.ComboBox
column.Name = "Name"
column.HeaderText = "Title"
column.DataPropertyName = "Database column here" 
column.DataSource = "A binding source goes here" 
column.ValueMember = "Value member name here"
column.DisplayMember = "Display member name here" 
column.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat
column.DisplayStyle = style
' and finally add it to your dgv
