Hi All,

I've got a datagrid view that has databound cells that return a numeric value. I'm trying to find out how I append to the data retrieved. Ie, if the cell receives 95.6 I would like to append a '%' symbol at the end to produce '95.6%'. I don't want to do this in my sql code as I need to do some other code depending on the number received.

    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
        <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#FFCC00" />
        <Columns>
            <asp:BoundField DataField="OrderNo" HeaderText="OrderNo"
                SortExpression="OrderNo" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="MailingName" HeaderText="MailingName"
                SortExpression="MailingName" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Sale Price" HeaderText="Sale Price"
                SortExpression="Sale Price" ReadOnly="True" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Cost" HeaderText="Cost" SortExpression="Cost"
                ReadOnly="True" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="MarginPer" HeaderText="MarginPer" ReadOnly="True"
                SortExpression="MarginPer" />
        </Columns>
    </asp:GridView>

Many Thanks
