Only show hyperlink if results return specific value ASP.NET Gridview SQL c#

I am working on some asp and having an issue trying to get my vision working.

So I currently have a sql table that has the following columns (xrefid,requested,status)

I have the datagrid populate based on xrefid and give me all values of the requested values.

However, I am looking to make it so that the "Requested" value if a hyperlink if status ='S' and not a hyperlink if Status='N'

So it would be similar to the picture attached.

Try this:

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" HeaderStyle-BackColor="#3AC0F2" HeaderStyle-ForeColor="White"
    runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
    <Columns>
        <asp:BoundField DataField="Status" HeaderText="Status" ItemStyle-Width="150" />
        <asp:TemplateField>
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:HyperLink ID="lnkStatusYes" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Status","http://www.abc.com/web/sompage.aspx?id={0}") %>'
                    Text="Status" Visible='<%# Eval("Status").ToString() == "Y" %>'
                    runat="server" />
                <asp:Label ID="lblStatusNo" Text='<%# Eval("Status") %>' Visible='<%# Eval("Status").ToString() == "N" %>'
                    runat="server" />
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:TemplateField>
    </Columns>
</asp:GridView>

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!this.IsPostBack)
    {            
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[1] { new DataColumn("Id", typeof(int)),
                        new DataColumn("Status",typeof(string)) });
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Y");
        GridView1.DataSource = dt;
        GridView1.DataBind();
    }
}

You may have to make a few changes.

Also, you will have to handle when data is empty or it is neither Y nor N.

I think I got it. I must use the expression

Text='<%# Eval("Requested").ToString() %>'

This is what I got working from hyperlink. So now I just need to make it work for the label

Ok So I got it working and Sammy you are the bomb. I made some corretions to your code and got it to do exactly what I wanted.
