I have an ascx page called main.ascx.

Main.ascx contains 2 controls. dailyevents1 and concuentevents1

Each of these controls contains a datagrid.

the main.ascx page also contains a submit link.

the submit link should sum up the contents of the 5th column in eash datagrid and display the total at the bottom of each datagrid.

I have this so far I just need to reference the datagrids using the find control method:

            private void lbsubmit_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                  dailyEvent = FindControl( "DailyEvent1") as DailyEvent;

                  DataGrid dg = FindControl( "DailyEvent1" ) as DataGrid;


                        TextBox tb = (TextBox)e.Item.Cells[5].FindControl("txtCreditsClaimed");
                  if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
                        //if(e.Item.Cells[5].Text.ToString() != null  || e.Item.Cells[5].Text.ToString().Length > 0 )
                        if(e.Item.Cells[5].Text.ToString().Length > 0 )
                              CalcTotal( e.Item.Cells[5].Text);
                              e.Item.Cells[5].Text =string.Format("{0:c}", Convert.ToDouble(e.Item.Cells[5].Text));
                  else if(e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Footer )
                        e.Item.Cells[5].Text = string.Format("{0:c}", runningTotal);


Says I cannot use e.items. How do I refereance txtCreditsClaimed inside the datagrid from this submit link.
