says it is not well formed.

I take exception to this (pun intended).

I stink at this.  Could use some help.  : )

Try this:

<a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server" href="~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=" + '<%# Eval("BidDocID") %>' + "-" + '<%# Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>View Document</a>

The preview version was '">View...

I removed the double quotes in between the single quote and the closing tag.

Looks like you might need to take out the last double quote.

+ '<%# Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>View Document</a>

my version: (untested)
<a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server" href="~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=<%# Eval("BidDocID") %>-<%# Eval("BidDocSID") %>">View Document</a>

<a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server" href='"~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=" + <%# Eval("BidDocID") %> + "-" + <%# Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>View Document</a>

Sorry for the previous one.. VS din't complain on the string concatenation for this one.

Here's how your href should look like...everything within single <%#...%>:

<a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server"
href='<%# "~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=" + Eval("BidDocID") + "-" + Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>View Document</a>

nmarun,
It looks like that but it's different.
I just plugged-in your code. The first one gave the same error. Second one is showing some weird formatting.

This seems to work:

In the ASP.NET markup:
 <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Bid Document:" SortExpression="BidDocID">
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                        <a id="linkViewDocument" runat="server" href='<%# "~/ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=" + Eval("BidDocID") + "-" + Eval("BidDocSID") %>'>View Document</a>
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                </asp:TemplateField>

Open in new window



in the rendered HTML:
<a href="ViewDoc.Aspx?DocID=1887855-1" id="ctl08_gvPendingRepairBids_ctl06_linkViewDocument">View Document</a>

Open in new window
