I have a gridview and am having some trouble referencing the ZipCode field.  

Code Behind
 Protected Sub btnAddSelectedCoverage_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnAddSelectedCoverage.Click
        Dim cnn As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("myprovalConnectionString").ConnectionString)
        Try
            For Each gvRow As GridViewRow In gdvZipList.Rows
                Dim chkBox As CheckBox = CType(gvRow.FindControl("RowLevelCheckBox"), CheckBox)
                Dim zip As TextBox = CType(gvRow.FindControl("ZipCode"), TextBox)
                If chkBox.Checked Then
                    Dim cmd As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
                    cmd.Connection = cnn
                    cmd.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
                    cmd.CommandText = "dbo.VendorCoverageInsert"

                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@VendorId", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = Session("VendorId").ToString
                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@UserId", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = Session("VendorId").ToString
                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@Selected", Data.SqlDbType.Bit).Value = chkBox.Checked
                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@Coverage", Data.SqlDbType.Char).Value = zip.ToString

                    cnn.Open()
                    cmd.ExecuteScalar()
                    cnn.Close()
                End If
            Next
            Dim dt As New System.Data.DataTable
            Dim sRedirect As String = "VendorAddEditCoverage.aspx?VID=" + Session("VendorId").ToString
            Response.Redirect(sRedirect)
        Finally
            cnn.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub

If zip is a textbox, then its value would be zip.Text rather than zip.ToString.

Oh, I see now the ZipCode field is a bound field. In that case you don't want to cast it as a textbox. You can access its value directly if you know the row and column. The row is whatever row the loop is currently on so...

cmd.Parameters.Add("@Coverage", Data.SqlDbType.Char).Value = gvRow.Cells(2).Text

...where 2 is the column number (zero index).
