By setting the DataGridViewColumn.SortMode property you can disable the ability for the user to sort on the given column. You can use Visual Studio to set this property by right-clicking on the DataGridView and choosing the Edit Columns option. Next select the column that you want to disable sorting for and set the SortMode property to NotSortable.

nuritat,
i think you are talking about asp.net Gridview, if yes then check the below code

protected void gdvDataViewer_PreRender1(object sender, EventArgs e) 
{ 
    Style s = new Style(); 
    s.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red; 
    s.Width = 200; 
 
    if (gdvDataViewer.AllowSorting) 
    { 
        foreach (TableCell tc in gdvDataViewer.HeaderRow.Cells) 
        { 
            if (tc.HasControls()) 
            { 
                LinkButton lb = (LinkButton)tc.Controls[0]; 
 
                if (lb != null && lb.Text.Equals("CoumnNmae")) // your column to make unsortable 
                { 
                    tc.ApplyStyle(s); 
                    tc.Attributes.Add("onclick","return false;"); 
                } 
            } 
        } 
    } 
 
}
