I have a project that requires me to allow a user to update 24 rows and 20 columns at one time. This is based on the hours in the day. However, the user does not wat to press an edit button on each record. an example is a spreadsheet with 24 rows. each row has eight 20 columns. each column needs to be filled with data. I would like to have text boxes for each column in every row. Can this be done without tables? if so, please provide a code sample.

Thanks.

yeah, as suggested by Mayank_joshi correctly, you can always use template field: just like this:
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="City" SortExpression="City">
        <ItemTemplate>
           <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtCityEdit" Text='<%# Eval("City") %>'></asp:Label>
        </ItemTemplate>
  </asp:TemplateField> So user will directly be presented with textbox and values filled in. but he still need to click on some button (update command) to update it to database.
