I am trying to create a dynamic hyperlink in my asp.net document. The code I am using for the link part is:

<asp:HyperLink  
text="<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"  
navigateurl="yourpath<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"
target="_blank" />

but in the browser the asp:Hyperlink tag is being returned without conversion into html:
<asp:hyperlink text="Soccer0002.pdf" navigateurl="yourpathSoccer0002.pdf" target="_blank">
    </asp:hyperlink>

an example version of the page is here: http://shatterboxwebdesign.com/slsdelete/delete-preview.htm

and my full page code is attached. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks

May be

<asp:HyperLink  
text="<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"  
navigateurl="<%# Server.MapPath(Eval("doc_loc")) %>"
target="_blank" />


Or you may want to concatenate path such as

<asp:HyperLink  
text="<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"  
navigateurl="<%# Server.MapPath("/Files/" & Eval("doc_loc")) %>"
target="_blank" />
