I'm pulling a bunch of columns from a datareader into a datagrid.  Right now it is handling all the formatting.

I just want to rename the column headers and leave everything else alone.  What is the simplest way to do this?

Thanks,

gridREQ.DataSource = rdr
gridREQ.DataBind()

If you have added a tablestyle to your grid, you can use the HeaderText
property of the columnstyle to change the column heading.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
         'change header for col 2
         Dim dgcs As DataGridColumnStyle =
Me.dataGrid1.TableStyles(0).GridColumnStyles(2)
         dgcs.HeaderText = "newtitle"
         Me.dataGrid1.Refresh()
End Sub

====================================
without tablestyles you can change the col name in the datatable and rebind the grid

ds.Tables.Item(0).Columns(1).ColumnName = "Test Caption"

On your query when you call your field:

SELECT HeaderThat_I_DontWant AS HeaderThat_I_Want
FROM MyTable

...  or you can go iboutchkine way but it won't change the grid it will change the table(tablestyle)... what he said.
