Well what I understand is that you want to fill the drop down list based on your selection of the check box, then upon the selection of certain item in the dop down list the gridview the second column of the grid view will be filled with certain values from the data base.

I suggest that you use the RowdataBound event handler to fill that field, but you have to make the column as templatefield and add a control to it such as a label. You can assign a value from an instance where that instance represent the type of data you are assigning to the gridview as a datasource (example a list of cars) .
ex:inside the RowDatabound handler

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
CType(e.Row.FindControl("your_label"), Label).Text = CType(e.Row.DataItem, Car).CarName
End If
