How to get selected value in comboxcolumn of datagridview

Rachna0309 asked:

Open original thread
I have datagridview which is populated with 8 columns also it is databound. Now my requirement is I need the last column say ABC As comboboxcolumn. But if in database, this ABC column has some value for a particular row, then that value should be displayed in that row's cell as selected value. Please help me to solve this.

- - - - UPDATE - - - - -
Dim cmbcaste As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()
cmbcaste.Name = "Caste"
cmbcaste.HeaderText = "Caste"
sql = "Select Description from Category where Catgry = 1"
If rs.State = 1 Then rs.Close() 
rs.Open(sql, MainCon, 1, 3) 
Do While Not rs.EOF

I have written the above code but it adds another combobox column and only fills combo.
