    <asp:boundfield datafield="CustomerID" headertext="Customer ID"/>
    <asp:boundfield datafield="CompanyName" headertext="Company Name"/>
    <asp:boundfield datafield="Address" headertext="Address"/>
    <asp:boundfield datafield="City" headertext="City"/>

As an example, based on your first grid column, you could use something like:
            BoundField bc = new BoundField();
            bc.DataField = "CustomerID";
            bc.HeaderText = "Customer ID";

Then you just need to repeat for your other columns.
