I would like to display the high value in each column of a datalist in bold.

Example:

Employee    hours      sales
emp1           6              <b>1</b>
emp2          <b>7</b>     0

I assume I achieve this in itemdatabound, but I'm stuck.

Thanks

Ok, to do it in your ITemDatabound event, you will first need to know which column has the greatest value, you can do this by looping the values and storing the index. Then looping again and when the index you saved has been met, you can make that column bold?
Does this sound like a method you could implement?

Thanks for the prompt response.  I think I can handle that, yeah.  Is achieving this in the ItemDatabound event the best way to go about it?

i would say so yes because you are formatting before the data has even been bound, its better than actually looping the table once it has been rendered
