Hi

I want to add an additional column in my GridView in ASP.net and I was given the following code and told to put it in between the <Columns> tag but as you can see in my GridView there is no such tag in my code in the code section. Can someone please show me where to insert this code to add a new column. I need the new column to ne a Yes/No column that people can tick


 <asp:TemplateField>
  <ItemTemplate>
    <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSelected" runat="server" />
  </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" 
            GridLines="None">

            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
            <EditRowStyle BackColor="#7C6F57" />
            <FooterStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#1C5E55" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <PagerStyle BackColor="#666666" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
            <RowStyle BackColor="#E3EAEB" />
            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#C5BBAF" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
            <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F8FAFA" />
            <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#246B61" />
            <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#D4DFE1" />
            <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#15524A" />
        </asp:GridView>
