why not bind only those rows which have data.
here is linq to help you select rows which have data:-

from row in table.AsEnumerable()
where table.Columns.Cast<DataColumn>.Any(col => !row.IsNull(col))
select row;

Put your code in the RowDataBound Control as shown below:

private void GridView_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)  {    
           // Check if the first cell is empty, if it is empty then hide it.
           // Note: You can change the if statement based on your needs.
           if (e.Row.Cells[0].Text == "")          
                    e.Row.Visible = false;  

}

I need to remove the row in the grid. Making the row invisible is keeping extra rows in the grid.
