I have the following:

<asp:GridView ID="gvResults" runat="server" Width="100%" AutoGenerateColumns="false" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333"
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="DBA Name" DataField="DBAName" />
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="City" DataField="City" />
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="State" DataField="State" />
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="P&C Volume" DataField="PCVolume" />
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Life Vol" DataField="LifeVolume" />
        <asp:BoundField ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Field Rep" DataField="PCFieldRep" />

I get a view with all of the fields displaying correctly, but for the DBAName, I actually want to display the DBAName, but have it be a hyperlink that opens a new window with the URL (which is contained in the datasource as 'Website').  If 'Website' is null or empty, it does not show the DBAName as a hyplerlink, but just text.

Can anyone help?  This is my first exposure to a dataview.
