GridView Disappears When I do a Sort

I have a gridview that disappears when I try to sort by one of the columns.  I can't see if there's a problem in the code.  Everything seems to be ok to me, but that must be wrong since I'm still having this problem.

I just tried to bring up another gridview which was working and sorting fine before, but now that one is having the same problem. When I click on the column header to sort, the grid disappears. Do you know of any issue or property or setting in IE 6 that might cause a scenerio like that.

If it helps, here's the ASP for the gridview and the SqlDataSource.  Let me know if you see anything amiss that I did not notice.

Thank you,
Craig Newman
