I have a datagrid view which retrieve data from MS ACCESS database.and one of the column is Date/Time type. i retrieve this column in datagridview using the following code

dataGridView1.Columns["DATERECEIVED"].DefaultCellStyle.Format = "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss";

I use the following eventhandler too

 private void dataGridView1_DataError(object sender, DataGridViewDataErrorEventArgs anError)
            if (anError.Exception != null && anError.Context == DataGridViewDataErrorContexts.Commit)

                MessageBox.Show("Error : " + anError.Context.ToString());
                anError.Cancel = true;

the problem is that whenever I type or attempt to type first digit in the cell of the column DATERECEIVED it raise the Dataerror event and shows the message Error:Commit. when I click the messageBox button OK it allows me to continue further editing. how I can get rid of this problem. please somebody help me

You could raise a 'dataGridView1_CellEndEdit' event, and then check, using IsDate, if the date entered is valid.
