Why does GridView paging not work when setting SqlDataSource SelectCommand attribute in code behind?

I have a GridView tied to a SqlDataSource.  TheSqlDataSource has SelectCommandType="Text".

The query string I'm looking to use will be dynamic.  For testing though, I'm trying "Select * from myTable".

I'm seeing two different behaviors for paging in the GridView depending on where I set the SelectCommand attribute of the SqlDataSource.  

1)  When I try to set SqlDataSource.SelectCommand in my code behind, the first page of data works, but any subsequent pages have no data.

2)  When I explicity put the SelectCommand in the GridView attributes, paging works fine.  This method doesn't work for me as I must be able to dynamically change the SelectCommand for the SqlDataSource.

Where am I failing with my code behind?

 could you tell me what code did you write for the PageIndexChanged event of the datagrid. it would be easier for me to help you then.

private void DataGrid1_PageIndexChanged(object source, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridPageChangedEventArgs e)
      ur code here....

I didn't have anything for that function.

I solved my problem by using a stored procedure instead of text command.
