Can you see from the data from which recordset the record comes ? I mean: is there a column which will tell us this comes from dataset1, this from 2

If so, you can check the following event
Private Sub DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.ItemDataBound

Private Sub DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.ItemDataBound
If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Then
Dim intPrice As Decimal = e.Item.Cells(1).Text ' thsi is price column no.
If intPrice > 100 Then
Dim i As Int16
For i = 0 To DataGrid1.Columns.Count
e.Item.Cells(i).BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red ' the row is in color red
End If
End If
End Sub
