Using BulkEditGridView, need to Save and Navigate with single "Continue" click

I am using BulkEditGridView in a multi-page data-entry site. I set SaveButtonID = Button1 where Button1 is a WebControls.Button labeled SAVE.  It works as it is supposed to. After saving the data, the user must click a WebControls.HyperLink control with NavigateUrl=~/MyNextPage.aspx to get to the next page to enter more data. I tried to combine the process of saving data and moving to the next page by placing VB statement Response.Redirect(~/MyNextPage.aspx) in the click event of Button1. This sends the user to the next page but does not save the data.

If it is possible to combine the two tasks into a Continue operation triggered by a single click, I would prefer that it be done in the HyperLink, although using the Button would still be an improvement. Any ideas? Thanks!

(Clearly this type of operation is possible, since I have seen it used on a number of sites - like asking this question right now on this site! - but it seems likely that it is being accomplished with something other than BulkEditGridView.  Should I be looking at a different language/technique to make this easier??)

Interestingly, you asked this question at another site, and the author just answered your question:

I did, in fact, ask the question elsewhere.  While the answer provided by the author was not everything I needed, it pointed me in the right direction.  
The way I ended up going was to use the RowUpdated event and increment a counter for each row that got updated every time the event fired.  I compared this to a total count of dirty rows obtained within the click event of the SaveButton from the value of GridView1.DirtyRows.Count.  When the rows updated matched the total dirty rows, I knew I was done updating and could then redirect to the next page.  Works great!
Also found that while the HyperLink control is not appropriate to use as a SaveButton, the LinkButton control acts like a HyperLink and initiates the save process just like a Button control.
