I have a gridview which I have populated using

Gridview1.DataSource = DataSet1;
Gridview1.databind();

when I run the following code

Gridview.Columns[4].ItemStyle.Width = 100;

I get an error saying Index was out of range.

I just don't understand as column 4 exists.

1) First find how many columns you have in the grid (Gridview.Columns.count)
2)analyze the column index thru immediate window of VS.Net.

hey,
try chaning the index value to 3 , if you have 4 columns in your Grid, that might be the cause.

the code which worked was

 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        {
            e.Row.Cells[4].Width = 500;
        }
