I need to create a gridview with 4 columns but only one of them is editable.  I want the user to be able to click, or arrow down the colum to each row and just change the value in that cell.  Anyone have any idea how to approach this problem.  This is an  asp:gridview.

thanks

The builtin grid in ASP.NET only allows editing one row at a time. Have you looked at datatables?

I ended up finding a great article for creating a gridview instance that does exactly what you need it to.  Allows  edit mode for a single or many columns.

Here is the link, thanks as always for the help
