Ok I have a gridview that uses TemplateFields:

                                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Description">
                                            <asp:LinkButton ID="lbDescription" OnClientClick='popup(''drilldown.aspx?<%# Bind("Description") %>'', '''');return false;' runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Description") %>' ForeColor="Black" Font-Underline="false" />

                                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Emer.">
                                            <asp:LinkButton ID="lbEmer" runat="server" OnClick="gvProjects_lbClick" Text='<%# Bind("Emergency", "{0:c}") %>' ForeColor="Black" Font-Underline="false" />
The LinkButton for Emer. works just fine

the Linkbutton in Description does not work:
Parser Error

Source Error:

Line 129:                                    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Description">
Line 130:                                        <ItemTemplate>
Line 131:                                            <asp:LinkButton ID="lbDescription" OnClientClick='popup(''drilldown.aspx'', '<%# Bind("Description") %>');return false;' runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Description") %>' ForeColor="Black" Font-Underline="false" />
Line 132:                                        </ItemTemplate>
Line 133:                                    </asp:TemplateField>


the end goal is to make the each cell in the gridview clickable.
once clicked they make a popup window that goes to an aspx page with a unique querystring based on what linkbutton they clicked on in the gridview.

so the querystring would be different across cells and rows based on the columnname and value of the cell...  

any suggestions? please :)
