Hello Experts,

I need the sytax for the navigateURL attribute in a asp:hyperlink control
      asp:hyperlink  text="<%# Bind("quote_number"%>" navigateURL=applicant.aspx?qn="     "
The first Item is the value in the text=="<%# Bind("quote_number"%>"
the next 2 items are in session variables.

You appear to have syntax errors with the text attribute as well. Try something like this:

<asp:hyperlink text='<%# Bind("quote_number") %>' navigateUrl = '<%# String.Format("applicant.aspx?qn={0}&other={1}", Bind("quote_number"), Session["someVar"] ) %>' runat='server'>

I need to have the qn be equal to the value that is in text attribute.  

After that, I have 2 more query strings that are coming from session variables.
Chumad, when trying to build your solution, i got errors on the Bind in the navigateURL part.
