This piece of code changes all my column headers to "test" but I need a way to change each column separately. Is there a way  to adapt this code to make different headers for each column? I have five columns. Thanks
foreach (DataControlFieldCell cell in GridView1.HeaderRow.Cells)
            cell.Text = "test";
