DetailsView - how to default to edit mode if record exists and Insert mode if it doesn't?

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have a DetailsView for Insert and Edits which I pass custID parameter by Querystring.  I need the DetailsView to go into Edit mode if a record is returned for this customer from the db and if not, I need it to go into Insert mode.  I'm using ASP.Net 2.0 - there must be an easy way to do this surely?
