Hi Phillip,

Thanks for your interest in our products.

This can be achieved by handling the PrepareViewStyleInfo event of the GroupDropArea. In the event, the respective column and row index can be checked and accordingly its name can be changed. The following is the code snippet
//groupDropArea.PrepareViewStyleInfo += new GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventHandler(groupDropArea_PrepareViewStyleInfo);
private void groupDropArea_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.ColIndex == 2 && e.RowIndex == 2)
e.Style.Text = "Syncfusion";

Sample : GroupDropFormatting

Have a nice time.

Best regards,
