Currently I am displaying information gathered from several database tables in a gridview. Most of this can be achieved by subqueries.

However, a few columns that I would like to display have results that can contain more then one value from a certain table. Is there a possiblity to run a second sql query for a specific itemtemplate / boundField in a gridview?

you could add processing of RowDataBound event to you class and at that moment execute another SQL query and build value for some specific cell text

Ok i tried to use the msdn code, and on the rowDataBound event I keep getting the error:

"Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done."

Any idea?

As far as I understand .NET does not allow opening of several MS SQL cursors simultaneously. So, you should set SQL Query for your GridView as DataSourceId property and asp:SqlDataSource with SQL statement defined for it. Then it makes DataSet as disconnected recordset and this way frees resources for another SQL statement to be executed on RowDataBound.
And dont forget to close connection each time in RowDataBound.

ok, it is working so far, thanks.
But how can I use a value from the gridview (let's say ID) for the query of the rowdatabound?

     protected void MyDG_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
      {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
-- you can get value of some column in the way like the following:
            int status_id =
               Convert.ToInt32(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem,    "status_id"));

-- you can get grid key value in the way like the following:
            string mykey = string.Empty;
           
                GridView g =(GridView)sender;
           
                mykey = g.DataKeys[e.Row.RowIndex].Value.ToString();
