How Do I change a Datagrid Column value to a different field Value from the same Dataset depending on another field value from the Dataset.

I have a dataset that is created from a stored procedure. The stored procedure can not be changed.
I have bound the datagrid's columns to the Grid. The problem I am having is how to change a column value (not header) depending on a different value from same dataset. The dataset contains a refID field and it also contains the 4 possibilities that coincide with the ref ID.
example:
If RefID = 1 get Datatset Field(1)
if RefID = 2 get Dataset Field(2) etc.

I am assuming that I need to do this in ItemDataBound but I don't have any idea as to how.

here is the binding code:
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            'Put user code to initialize the page here
            Dim aMGR As New aMGR
            dgGrid.DataSource = aMGRGetDetails()
            dgGridDataBind()
 End Sub

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I took the value that will be displayed in the first column of the grid at 0 index and used a select case statement. If the case matched then I changed the cell value in cell(1) to the dataItem I needed.

Private Sub dgErrors_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles dgErrors.ItemDataBound
             If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
                Select Case Trim(e.Item.Cells(0).Text).ToUpper
                    Case "ONE"
                        e.Item.Cells(1).Text = e.Item.DataItem("field3")
                     Case "TWO"
                        e.Item.Cells(2).Text = e.Item.DataItem("field4")
                    Case "THREE"
                        e.Item.Cells(2).Text = e.Item.DataItem("field4")
                    Case "FOUR"
                        e.Item.Cells(2).Text = e.Item.DataItem("field5")
                    Case Else
                        e.Item.Cells(2).Text = "N/A"
                End Select
            End If
        End Sub
