AFAIK, you can't specify more than 1 field for DataNavigateUrlField.

You aren't the first person to ask this question.

Thanks Bob.   I was not able to get it working using multiple data fields like I defined above but I was able to accomplish this by using a Template Column as follows:

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Print Version">
<a href='MyProgram.Aspx?EmpName=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "EmpName") %>&LoadDate=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "LoadDate") %>'>Print Version</a>

This works great.
