Hi, hope someone can help

I have a page displaying a GridView of contents with a hyperlink and I want to display contents of a hyperlink row on another page in a DetailsView

The database is a simple MSAccess three columned table called News: 'NewsID', 'ArticleTitle','Article'

News1.aspx will list 'NewsID' and 'ArticleTitle' I have also included an extra column containing the hyperlink 'More...'
News2.aspx should be displaying 'ArticleTiltle' and 'Article' once hyperlink is clicked.

The GridView table in News1.aspx is configured thus:

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="AccessDataSource1" Style="position: static" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="NewsID">
<Columns>
<asp:BoundField DataField="NewsID" HeaderText="NewsID" InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True"
SortExpression="NewsID" HtmlEncode="False" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="ArticleTitle" HeaderText="ArticleTitle" SortExpression="ArticleTitle" HtmlEncode="False" />
<asp:HyperLinkField DataNavigateUrlFields="NewsID" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="News2.aspx?NewsID={0}"
DataTextField="ArticleTitle" HeaderText="More" Text="More" />
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>

The table displays ok and the link opens News2.aspx, BUT DISPLAYS THE SAME DATA FOR FOR EACH ROW. INSTEAD OF SELECTED ROW.

"I believe the problem lies with my select statement which I am having diffcult setting up .....


In News2.aspx I have inserted a DetailsView table and created a datasource to the Access 'News.mdb' database but this just displays it's own record instance rather than displaying the data related to the NewsID row in the DataView table on News1.aspx.

Appreciate any advice as I am at a loss!
