hi friends,

since last two days I searched the entire web. but I did not get any useful code
regarding a DataGrid ComboBoxcolumn;I have a DataGrid with 4 columns,"Location"
"From" "To"and "DispatchStatus". these columns are binded to a MSAccess DataBase .but the 4 th column I want as a ComboBoxColumn,so that it gives some pre decided value such as "Dispatched" "Received" "ReturnedBack" "waiting for Delivery" in the comboboxcolumn.

In stead of Bound Field use Template Field for the Combob box column

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Example">
                                                                <asp:DropDownList ID="ddExample"  AutoPostBack="false" runat="server" />

and in .cs file write the function to get values need to listed on Drop Down 
and on gdv_RowDatabound event bind it with gridview
like this
<pre lang="c#"><pre>DropDownList ddexample = (DropDownList)e.Row.FindControl("ddExample");
                    ddexample .DataSource = options;
          ddexample .DataTextField =options.Columns["Examples"].ToString();
          ddexample .DataValueField = options.Columns["Examples"].ToString();
                    ddexample .DataBind();
                    TableCell gridview= e.Row.Cells[10];
                    ddexample .SelectedValue = ddexample .Text;
