This is the first Page where i define the Datagrid and populate the data from the SQL server to the DataGrid.

<TD align="center" colSpan="4"><asp:datagrid id="DataGrid2" runat="server" Width="100%" Font-Names="Tahoma" Font-Size="XX-Small" EnableViewState="True" CellPadding="4" HeaderStyle-BackColor="Black" HeaderStyle-ForeColor="White" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" HeaderStyle-Font-Bold="True" OnDeleteCommand="DataGrid2_Delete" OnUpdateCommand="DataGrid2_Update" OnCancelCommand="DataGrid2_Cancel" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
<HeaderStyle Font-Bold="True" HorizontalAlign="Center" ForeColor="White" BackColor="Black"></HeaderStyle>
                                                <asp:BoundColumn DataField="PartnerID" HeaderText="PartnerID" ReadOnly="True"></asp:BoundColumn>
                                                <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name"></asp:BoundColumn>
                                                <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Country" HeaderText="Country"></asp:BoundColumn>


This is the code-behind of the first page:

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        If Not IsPostBack Then show()

End Sub

Private Sub show()

        'Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
        Dim conn As New SqlConnection(Application("SQL_CONNECTION_STRING"))

        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("Select * from External_Partners", conn)
        Dim objDR As SqlDataReader
        objDR = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        Datagrid2.DataSource = objDR

End Sub

Now this is the 2nd page (VB code) in which i wish to get the Datagrid.Items.count

Dim cmdProj_Part As New SqlCommand("Insert into Proj_ExtPartner (ProjectID,PartnerID) values (@ProjectID,@PartnerID) ", conn)
        cmdProj_Part.Parameters.Add("@ProjectID", SqlDbType.Int)
        cmdProj_Part.Parameters.Add("@PartnerID", SqlDbType.Int)

        Dim i As Integer

        Label1.Text = Context.Items("retID")
        For i = 0 To Request.Form("DataGrid2.Items.Count") - 1
        cmdProj_Part.Parameters("@ProjectID").Value = retProjectID
        cmdProj_Part.Parameters("@PartnerID").Value = Request.Form("DataGrid2.Items(i).Cells(1).Text")

Basically i am trying to get each dataGrid row ID so i can enter it a SQL table.
