Still new to the .net
I am tring to move fields from a gridview row (I can get the data) to a bound formview fields. Then enter additional fields and insert data into new table bound to the formview.

Code follows
<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
              DataKeyNames="AssignmentID" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" Visible="False" 
              Width="652px"
              selectedindex="0"
              onselectedindexchanged="MGridView_SelectedIndexChanged" Height="157px">
              <Columns>
                  <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="AssignmentID" HeaderText="AssignmentID" 
                      InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="AssignmentID" 
                      Visible="False" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="WorkPeriod" HeaderText="WorkPeriod" 
                      SortExpression="WorkPeriod" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Employee" HeaderText="Employee" 
                      SortExpression="Employee" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Shift" HeaderText="Shift" SortExpression="Shift" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Level" HeaderText="Level" SortExpression="Level" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Area" HeaderText="Area" SortExpression="Area" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Boss" HeaderText="Boss" SortExpression="Boss" />
                  <asp:BoundField DataField="Role" HeaderText="Role" SortExpression="Role" />
              </Columns>
          </asp:GridView>
