Im trying to loop through my gridview to update datarows and insert data in the footer row.
For my test I've 4 datarows to update
1 footerrows to insert
In the code below it seems to only loop through the datarows ie it goes through the loop 4 times and skips the Footer row..

 foreach (GridViewRow Row in GridView1.Rows)
           if (Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) // normal editable row
          // update
     else if (Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
          // insert

Any ideas?

You need to use the code in the RowDataBind event

//Something like this
void detailsGridView_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        // add the UnitPrice and QuantityTotal to the running total variables
        priceTotal += Convert.ToDecimal(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, _
        quantityTotal += Convert.ToInt32(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, _
    else if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
        e.Row.Cells[0].Text = "Totals:";
        // for the Footer, display the running totals
        e.Row.Cells[1].Text = priceTotal.ToString("c");
        e.Row.Cells[2].Text = quantityTotal.ToString("d");
        e.Row.Cells[1].HorizontalAlign = _
          e.Row.Cells[2].HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right;
        e.Row.Font.Bold = true;

GridView.Rows only returns the DataRows and not the Footer.
You get explicit access to footer via GridView.FooterRow property.
