How would I go about getting a column in a GridView to always show a dollar sign *all the way to the LEFT of the column*.  Right now the content of it is right justified, but I would like to put a dollar sign all the way to the left.  Thanks.

It can be done using a label control inside a template column.

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText = "Amount">
    <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="right" />
       <ItemTemplate>
          $<asp:Label ID="lblAmt" runat="server" Width="100px" Text='<%# Eval("amt", "{0:N2}") %>'></asp:Label>
       </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

Hope that helps
Edwin
