I have a gridview that has 5 columns.  The 5th column is an edit link.
How can I use one or more of the bound fields in the querystring?

The way I did it is not working:
<asp:HyperLinkField NavigateUrl="editAttorney.aspx?mi=<% Eval("Assigned") %>" Text="Edit" />

<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" 
        AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
        DataSourceID="orclDataSource" CellPadding="3" CellSpacing="1" Font-Size="Small" 
        ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None" HorizontalAlign="Center" PageSize="20" 
        <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ASSIGNED" HeaderText="Initials" 
                SortExpression="ASSIGNED" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ASSIGNED_LAST_NAME" HeaderText="Last Name" 
                SortExpression="ASSIGNED_LAST_NAME" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ASSIGNED_FIRST_NAME" HeaderText="First Name" 
                SortExpression="ASSIGNED_FIRST_NAME" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="ASSIGNED_MI" HeaderText="Middle Initials" 
                SortExpression="ASSIGNED_MI" />
            <asp:HyperLinkField NavigateUrl="editAttorney.aspx" Text="Edit" />
        <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
        <PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
        <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
        <EditRowStyle BackColor="#2461BF" />
        <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
