This code below makes Name column in my grid all clickable and redirects, but what I need is only when loginPassword is null and ((bool)Session["Account"] == true)
I tried to put that in MakeLInk code below and I added this code but it only makes one row clickable even though I have two null password rows(records)
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
        if (e.Item.ItemType == GridItemType.AlternatingItem ||
            e.Item.ItemType == GridItemType.Item)

            Password = DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "loginPassword").ToString();

            GridDataItem dataItem = (GridDataItem)e.Item;

            if (Password == "")

                SetPassword = "";
<radG:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="4"
            DataSourceID="dsManager" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None"

                       <radG:GridBoundColumn DataField="profileID" HeaderText="ID" SortExpression="ID"

code behind
public string MakeLink(string displayName)
        string returnValue;

        if ((bool)Session["Account"] == true)
            returnValue = "<a href='myaccount.aspx?ID=" + Session["ID"] + "' Target='_blank' >" + displayName + "</a>";
            returnValue = "&nbsp;";
        return returnValue;
