I take exception to this (pun intended).

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

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>

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.

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>
