Can i display the headers in the row like below?

If yes, how to do it?

It seems that you need a pivot table. This example tells you how to create a pivot data table and bind it to a DataGrid. You should be able to use it for GridView as well.

It doesn't explain how it can be done using SqlDataSource web control? I'm using the sqldatasource to bind with GridView, thus user is able to edit, delete straight away in the GridView.
Any advice?
