Can I re-use same gridview and code and only change instead of insert select?

 I mean use the same data table and connection string?

If you have the gridview based on a datasource, then you can create a template column with the following:

<asp:Label ID="lbl_EmpName" runat="server" text='<%# Container.DataItem("EmployeeName") %>' />, &nbsp;<asp:Label ID="lbl_EmpNumber" runat="server" text='<%# Container.DataItem("EmployeeNumber") %>' />

here's some more information on this:
