I am using a gridview to allow users to enter data into multiple rows.  I want them to be able to click on one Update button and save all the rows at once.
I am using asp.net in VS 2005 and cannot find a simple way to display the gridview in edit mode.  I have found many examples for C+ but not VB.
Can I programatically databind() the gridview and then have it display the one column I need to allow data entry in edit mode??

Yes you can:

Update Featured Items List <asp:ImageButton ImageUrl="~/images/Update.gif" runat="server" OnClick="UpdateFeatured_Click" ID="UpdateFeatured" />

<asp:GridView ID="grdFeatured" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" DataSourceID="dtSrcSelFeat" AutoGenerateColumns="False" BorderWidth="0px" PageSize="12" DataKeyNames="ProductID">
<asp:BoundField DataField="productname" HeaderText="Product Name"/>
Is Featured
<asp:CheckBox ID="chkFeat" runat="server" />

Protected Sub UpdateFeatured_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Handles UpdateFeatured.Click
For Each row In GridView1.Rows
txtQty = CType(row.Findcontrol("txtQuantity"), TextBox)
' Do your stuff here
If (txtQty.Text <> "") Then
If Convert.ToInteger(txtQty.Text) > 0 Then
'Create entry into the Orders table here
End If
End If
End Sub
