Hi,
I have a page with hyperlinks inside a datalist which are working fine.
In a code behind page I have the following code:

<asp:datalist id="dlReports" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 376px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 200px"
Font-Names="Verdana" Width="224px" Font-Name="Arial" CellSpacing="2" CellPadding="2" GridLines="none" Runat="server"
Font-Size="X-Small">
<HeaderTemplate>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:HyperLink runat="server" NavigateUrl ='<%#"Page1.aspx?ReportDate=" & DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ReportDate", "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}").ToString() & "&Flag=" & DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "CompleteFlag") %>' ID="Hyperlink1">
<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ReportName")%>
</asp:HyperLink>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:datalist>

But now I am trying to add another page - Page2.aspx to the same datalist but I am not sure how I can do this...
I think by running a sql statement -- I could check if my report date >= '02/23/2005' then I would want it
to go to Page2 else all other reports <= '02/23/2005'  to go to Page1...

ReportList.aspxb
Report_03/02/2005  <- hyperlink   (Page2.aspx)
Report_02/23/2005   (Page2.aspx)    
Report_02/16/2005   (Page1.aspx)  
Report_02/09/2005   (Page1.aspx)      
Report_02/02/2005   (Page1.aspx)

Could anyone help me...
Thanks!

If u want to change the URL dynamically, better do it in server side (itemdatabound event).
Placea literal control instead of HyperLink control and manipulate it in itemdatabound.
ASPX PAGE
========
<asp:datalist id="dlReports" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 376px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 200px" Font-Names="Verdana" Width="224px" Font-Name="Arial" CellSpacing="2" CellPadding="2" GridLines="none" Runat="server"
Font-Size="X-Small">
<HeaderTemplate>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Literal runat="server" ID="Literal1" Runat=''Server'>
<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ReportName")%>
</asp:HyperLink>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:datalist>

C# PAGE
======
private void dlReports_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataListItemEventArgs e)
{
  if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType ==  
  ListItemType.SelectedItem || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
 {
     Literal myLiteral = (Literal)e.Item.FindControl("Literal1");
     if (report_date >= '02/23/2005' )
           myLiteral.Text = "<a href='Page2.asp'>Click Here</a>";
    else
           myLiteral.Text = "<a href='Page1.asp'>Click Here</a>";
 }
}
