I have a gridview that allows paging and uses a row command event.

The gridview column that caused the issue is:
                        <asp:TemplateField>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" Runat="server" OnClientClick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this item?');"
                                CommandName="ConvertDelete" CommandArgument="<%# Container.DataItemIndex %>">Delete</asp:LinkButton>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                            <ItemStyle BackColor="#FFC0C0" Font-Size="X-Small" />
                        </asp:TemplateField>


The codebehind code that causes the issue is:

                Dim index As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument)
                Dim row As GridViewRow = gridview1.Rows(index)

The error reads:

Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
Parameter name: index

The index value is greater than the page size.  Everything works on Page 1 but fails on all other pages.

Please help!

Why you are setting CommandArgument to Container.DataItemIndex. Set it directly to the primary key of your table like the ItemID which you can use to delete the record.

You  can set the CommandArgument of the LinkButton in the grid's RowCreated event.  

See the example here:
