I have a page and when it loads, a gridview is populated with 1000 records. I have two text boxes which searches first name and last name.
Anytime i type in "be" for the lastname to search, I only see a page of data. If i click on page 2 i start seeing other data not related to "lastname = be" . I thought the value of "be" is not in view state and i put it in view state but still getting the same problem. Page 1 works well but other pages do not. Pls assist.

Try:

protected void sdgridview_PageIndexChanging(object sender, GridViewPageEventArgs e)
    {
        try
        {
            PopulateGridByCriteria();
            sdgridview.PageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;
            //dots
            sdgridview.DataBind();
           
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Response.Redirect("Error.aspx");

Thanks for your assistance scqstuff. Your code works but has broken my initial data that i load on page load. Presently, once my page loads, it is only the first page that is sorted in ascending order. once i click on the second page, no more ascending order. I will start seeing last name starting with V

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        try
        {
            //if (!this.IsPostBack)
            //{
            //    PopulateStudentDirecGrid();
            //}
           
                PopulateStudentDirecGrid();

        }
        catch(Exception ex)
        {
            Response.Redirect("Error.aspx");
        }            
    }



 private void PopulateStudentDirecGrid()
    {
        try
        {
                             
            //DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            string connectionString = AccessConnectionString();
            sdcmd = new SqlCommand();
            sdcmd.CommandText = "DisplayAllStudentDirectory";
            cn = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
            cn.Open();
            sdcmd.Connection = cn;
            sdcmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            da = new SqlDataAdapter(sdcmd);

            DataTable studentDT = new DataTable("StudentD");
            da.Fill(studentDT);
            int dataTableRowCount = studentDT.Rows.Count;

            if (dataTableRowCount > 0)
            {
                sdgridview.Visible = true;
                lblresult.Visible = false;
                sdgridview.DataSource = studentDT;
                sdgridview.DataBind();
                sdgridview.Columns[0].Visible = false;
            }                  
        }
        catch(Exception ex)
        {
            //Session["Exception"] = ex;
            Response.Redirect("Error.aspx");        
        }

    }

You may want to join the PopulateStudentDataGrid and PopulateGridByCriteria into one sub and then do an if txtLastname not null then commandtext = DisplayStudentByCriteria else DisplayAllStudentDirectory.  I think that would allow you to add the data needed to the grid and select an index page before databinding.

Thanks for your comment. The reason why i seperated them is that I have a button link on the page which calls the PopulateStudentGrid which displays all record and not specific record. do you know how I can incorporate this within the same method?

I don't have the test page setup, but I have tried to put the code togther the way I think it would read.  Try this:

    private void PopulateStudentDirecGrid()
    {
        try
        {
            string connectionString = AccessConnectionString();
            sdcmd = new SqlCommand();
            cn = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
            cn.Open();
            sdcmd.Connection = cn;
            sdcmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
            if (txtlastname.Text = "" && txtfirstname.Text)
            {
                sdcmd.CommandText = "DisplayAllStudentDirectory";
                da = new SqlDataAdapter(sdcmd);
            }
            else
            {
                da = new SqlDataAdapter("DisplaystudentByCriteria", cn);
                da.SelectCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                da.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@surname",SqlDbType.VarChar,30));
                CurrentLastNameSearch = txtlastname.Text;
                da.SelectCommand.Parameters["@surname"].Value = CurrentLastNameSearch;
                da.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@Firstname", SqlDbType.VarChar, 30));
                da.SelectCommand.Parameters["@Firstname"].Value = txtfirstname.Text;
            }
            DataTable studentDT = new DataTable("StudentD");
            da.Fill(studentDT);
            int dataTableRowCount = studentDT.Rows.Count;

            if (dataTableRowCount > 0)
            {
                sdgridview.Visible = true;
                lblresult.Visible = false;
                sdgridview.DataSource = studentDT;
                sdgridview.DataBind();
                sdgridview.Columns[0].Visible = false;
            }
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            //Session["Exception"] = ex;
            Response.Redirect("Error.aspx");
        }
    }
