Alternate and easy way:
set the DataFormatString of Databound field
Format: {0:F}
1234.567 -> 1234.57
Format: {0:F3}
1234.567 -> 1234.567

for eg:
DataFormatString ="{0:F3}"

in aspx page design mode
single click on gridView1
then click on ">" of gridView1
then click on 'Edit Columns'
then select respective field and set 'DataFormatString'

Hey there,
Had a similar issue a while back...

VB Code to limit decimal:
Me.DataGridView1.Columns.Item(3).DefaultCellStyle.Format = "n2"

C# Code:
dataGridView2.Columns["Column_Name"].DefaultCellStyle.Format = "n2";
