            adapter = New SqlDataAdapter(sql, connection)
            ds.Locale = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture
            DGVListAll.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try

        'Set the DataGridView properties to bind it to the data
        'DGVListAll.AutoGenerateColumns = True
        Me.DGVListAll.Columns("Date").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "dd/MM/yyyy"
        Me.DGVListAll.Columns("VDate").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "dd/MM/yyyy"

        'Declare and set the currency header alignment property
        Dim objAlignRightCellStyle As New DataGridViewCellStyle
        objAlignRightCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter

        'Declare and set the alternating rows style
        Dim objAlternatingCellStyle As New DataGridViewCellStyle()
        objAlternatingCellStyle.BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke
        DGVListAll.AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle = objAlternatingCellStyle

        'Bind Link column
        Dim linkColumn As DataGridViewLinkColumn = New DataGridViewLinkColumn()
        linkColumn.DataPropertyName = "Link"
        linkColumn.HeaderText = "Link"

I use the code above to display a DataGridView column text as a hyperlink.  This works fine but it still dispays the original column. So I have 1 'Links' column that is normal text and the other as hyperlink. How can I stop the original text column from displaying.
