onRowDataBound Foreach not going into Footer

Hi  
When I debug, my program is not going into the else if(gvr.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer) part.  There is definitely a footer in my GridView and it displays on the page but for some reason my foreach doesn't recognise it - my code is as follows:

   public void GridView1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        foreach (GridViewRow gvr in gvReportonPortCatches.Rows)
        {
            if (gvr.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                //do stuff here
            }

            else if(gvr.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
            {
            //do stuff here
            }
        }
    }
Please can someone advise me why this is not working as expected??

The onRowDataBound fires when a data row is bound to the gridview, so the whole gridview is not bound yet.  The snippet shows totaling a quantity that is in the thirdcolumn which uses a databound column definition.
 
  int totalQuantity;

 protected void grdProjects_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
 {
  
  switch (e.Row.RowType)
  {
   case DataControlRowType.DataRow:
    // do your stuff here
    // add quantity that is in the third column databound (remove)
    totalQuantity += int.Parse( e.Row.Cells[2].Text);
    break;
   case DataControlRowType.Footer:
    // do your stuff here
    // Place total in Footer (remove)
    e.Row.Cells[2].Text = totalQuantity.ToString();
    break;
   case DataControlRowType.Header:
    // initialize  (remove)
    totalQuantity = 0;
    break;
   default:
    break;
  }
 }

Thanks but I'm using onDataBound not onRowDataBound.

Sorry, but your Title and tag stated onRowDataBound.  In the databound event, you must reference the footer row through FooterRow property (gridview1.FooterRow).  The rows collection property of a gridview only contains the data rows.  When dealing with headers/footers of a grid with each row data ( as in do stuff here), I prefer the onRowDataBound event in which I may have to use a page local variable. Either design will work depending on what stuff you need to do.

Thanks and sorry for the wrong title (oops!).  This has worked except the row is not going into the correct place in the footer as there is already a row there and I need it to go above that row.  To be fair I'll post this problem as another question :-)
