To get the value of the cell the easiest thing to do would be to use an ItemTemplate in the Gridview with a Label, then find the Label using the FindControl method in the RowDataBound method.

Your GridView:

                   <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="MyHeader">
                            <asp:Label ID="MyLabel" runat="server"></asp:Label>

In your RowDataBoundMethod:

Label myLabel = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("MyLabel"); // ID of the control you are seeking

if (myLabel != null)
    Label1.Text  = myLabel.Text;

It is not strictly required that you use a label.  If you wanted to avoid using a label control it would look something like this:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="MyHeader">
    <%# Eval("DataboundField") %>

Label1.Text = e.Row.Cells[2].Text

That's a good point nbove, but I tend to avoid using ordinals when referencing objects.  What happens if the template is modified and a column is added before the 3rd column?  The RowBound is suddenly referencing the wrong column, unless the code in that method is modified as well.

By using a Label and FindControl, you don't have to worry about column orders.  Whether the Label is in column 0 or column 100, the reference will never change in the RowBound method.

This is all I needed...

Label1.Text = e.Row.Cells[2].Text
