I have two gridview in a webpage, each get data from different source but they have two rows are are the same
Gridview1
Code    Boxes      
x1           100

GridView2
Code     Boxes
x1          120

Gridview updates Boxes automatically

Perhaps the question was not understood,  
Grid1
code     boxes
x1          200
x2          100

Grid2
code      boxes
x1         300
x2          150

compare grid1  on code  to grid2 and   add a column on grid2
where it will show the difference on BOXES  from grid1  to grid2  base on CODE

Can you show how you bind the data, because I think you'll need some comparision on level of your datainput (sqldatasource, objectdatasource, ...)

I've tested it with code below
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            DataTable dtGrid1 = new DataTable();
            dtGrid1.Columns.Add("Code", typeof(string));
            dtGrid1.Columns.Add("Boxes", typeof(int));
            DataTable dtGrid2 = new DataTable();
            dtGrid2.Columns.Add("Code", typeof(string));
            dtGrid2.Columns.Add("Boxes", typeof(int));
 
            // fill first datatable
            DataRow dr = dtGrid1.NewRow();
            dr["Code"] = "x1";
            dr["Boxes"] = 100;
            dtGrid1.Rows.Add(dr);
            dr = dtGrid1.NewRow();
            dr["Code"] = "x2";
            dr["Boxes"] = 200;
            dtGrid1.Rows.Add(dr);
 
            // fill second datatable
            dr = dtGrid2.NewRow();
            dr["Code"] = "x1";
            dr["Boxes"] = 100;
            dtGrid2.Rows.Add(dr);
            dr = dtGrid2.NewRow();
            dr["Code"] = "x2";
            dr["Boxes"] = 220;
            dtGrid2.Rows.Add(dr);
 
            GridView1.DataSource = dtGrid1;
            GridView1.DataBind();
 
            GridView2.DataSource = dtGrid2;
            GridView2.DataBind();
 
        }
 
        protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            DataTable alfa = (DataTable)GridView1.DataSource;
            alfa.Columns.Add("Equal", typeof(bool));
            DataTable beta = (DataTable)GridView2.DataSource;
            foreach (DataRow x in alfa.Rows)
            {
                bool bEqual = false;
                string strFilter = "Code = '" + x["code"].ToString() + "'";
                DataRow[] filtered = beta.Select(strFilter);
                if (filtered.GetUpperBound(0) >= 0)
                {
                    DataRow dr = filtered[0];
                    if (dr["Boxes"].ToString().Trim() == x["Boxes"].ToString().Trim())
                        bEqual = true;
                }
                x["Equal"] = bEqual;
            }
            GridView1.DataSource = alfa;
            GridView1.DataBind();
        }
