Insert on DataGridView is not working on my ASP.Net web page

I have the following definition in a form on my webpage.  The code puts a datagridview on the page and populates the grid from a table in my database.  Each row has an Edit, Delete option.  If Edit is chosen, the user can change the fields in the datagridview.  When finished with the modifications, the Update option is clicked at which time the changes are made to the database.  This works as I expected and want.  The last row in the datagridview is to insert a new record.  When I try and do the Insert, a new record is added but the fields are blank.  I copied this format from another page that does the same thing with a different table and that jpage works fine.  I'm probably just missing something but can't figure out what it is.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I finally discovered the problem.  I need to set the parameter fields on the Inserting event for the data source.  Here is the code that solved the problem:

Protected Sub BereavementFacilitators_Inserting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceCommandEventArgs) Handles BereavementFacilitators.Inserting
Dim CT As TextBox = BereavementFacilitatorsGridView.FooterRow.FindControl("NewFacilitatorTB")
Dim PH As TextBox = BereavementFacilitatorsGridView.FooterRow.FindControl("NewFacilitatorPhoneTB")
e.Command.Parameters("Category").Value = "Facilitators"
e.Command.Parameters("Contact").Value = CT.Text
e.Command.Parameters("Phone").Value = PH.Text
