  foreach (GridViewRow r in this.GridView1.Rows)
        {
            r.Cells[3].Text = r.Cells[3].Text.Substring(0, 50) + " ...";
        }

//where Cells[3] is your description field
//replace 3 by the column number (zero-based)

word of advice...don't award someone points and then ask another question under the same question...especially one that's arguably harder than the original.  There's no point in us answering with the motivation of points gone, especially for those that didn't receive any.  If you really need an answer, you should start a new question.  (Not trying to be a jerk, just giving a tip).
