I have the gridview below.

In my code behind I then have:
 Protected Sub gvInvoiceQueries_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles gvInvoiceQueries.RowDataBound
        Dim invoice As Invoice = Nothing
        Dim lblPaymentType As Label = Nothing

        Try
            Select Case e.Row.RowType
                Case DataControlRowType.DataRow
                    lblPaymentType = CType(e.Row.FindControl("lblPaymentType"), Label)

The label is nothing so isn't being found.

What am I doing wrong?
<asp:GridView  ID="gvInvoiceQueries" runat="server" CssClass="gridviewheader" AutoGenerateColumns="False" > 
     <Columns>
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Query Type">     
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblQueryType" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("QueryType.Description")%>'></asp:Label>                                        
                </ItemTemplate>                                 
            </asp:TemplateField> 
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Payment Type">     
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblPaymentType" runat="server" Text=''></asp:Label>                                        
                </ItemTemplate>                                 
            </asp:TemplateField>

that code you posted initially should work. e.Row.FindControl(xx)

i used it in c# and it got the label. i then converted to VB and it gave me :

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
      Dim l As Label = DirectCast(e.Row.FindControl("lblPaymentType"), Label)
      l.Text = "rob"
End If
