Default value for insert parameter


I have two detailsview on a single page, DetailsView1 and DetailsView2.

DetailsView1 is based on a recordset as follows:

ApplicantID (PK)

DetailsView2 is based on a recordset as follows:

ApplicationNoteID (PK)
ApplicantID (FK from tblApplication)

Now, I would like to insert a new record into tblAppllicationNote using DetailsView2, and I have assigned the parameters as follows:
                <asp:Parameter Name="ApplicantID" Type="Int32" DefaultValue="2" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="NoteDetails" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="NoteDate" Type="DateTime" />

As you can see, I have assigned a default value of "2" for ApplicantID to test that the insert command works, which it does.

However, I would like to set the default value of ApplicantID to be the currentvalue of DetailsView1; i.e. as we page through the recordset in DetailsView1, then inserting a note in DetailsView2 will happen correctly.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.
