When you create a column of combo boxes, those combos must be assigned a list of items which will be displayed when you select it. The value which goes into the dgv cell must be in that list of items. In your case, one or more of the combo box cells contains a value which is not in the item list, hence the cell value is invalid.

how Can I add combo box cell for all row when I set dataset to data grid view ;

...I wrote this code but it does n't work:datagridview.DataSource = ds;

datagridview.DataMember = "selectE";

DataGridViewComboBoxCell cell = new DataGridViewComboBoxCell();

for (int i = 0; i < ds.Tables["Post"].Rows.Count; i++)




for (int j = 0; j < ds.Tables["selectE"].Rows.Count; j++)

{ datagrid_Name181[0,j] = cell;
