In a Gridview I have a column with a Templetfield that has an imaige of a floppy disk. In the RowDataBound event I have e.Row.Cells(0).Attributes.Add(.... stuff.

What I would like to do is, if the file to be downloaded does not exists, change the image to something else.

You can read this in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/VB_DOT_NET/Q_21069007.html

Imports System.IO

Then, you can use the shared Exists() method to look for a specific file. With
the File class, you pass in the path as a string, like so:

If File.Exists("c:\myfile.txt") Then
'do something  
Else
'do something  
End If

i = the number of cell
j = the number of control in cell

CType(e.Row.Cells(i).Controls(j), Image).ImageURL = "available.gif"

also you can use

CType(e.Row.Cells(0).FindControl("ImageControlName"), Image).ImageURL = "available.gif"

you can just use CType(e.Row.FindControl("Name_Of_Your_Image"), Image).ImageURL = "path to pic.gif"
