Can u please be more clear on this?? The mapping is not very clear as to displaying columns into 1 row. Did u mean that u wanted to merge the values of all the columns corresponding to each row in your database table into one row??

Database looks like this

Col Col Col1 Col2 Col3 Col4
xData yData a b c d

I want to display it in DataGrid like this

Col_Header Col_Header Col1-4_Header
xData yData a

If Col3 aan Col4 are empty line break shouldn't be inserted.

Does this make it more clear?

You could do something like this below.

<asp:BoundColumn HeaderText="xData" DataField="xData"/>

<asp:BoundColumn HeaderText="yData" DataField="yData"/>

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Col1-4_Header">
        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "a") %>
        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "b") %>
        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "c") %>
        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "d") %>

But if the column c and d are empty it will print <br> twice which I don't want.
5/10/2005 5:49:28 AM

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Col1-4_Header">

         <asp:Label id="lblStuff" Runat="server"></asp:label>


In code behind...

DataGrid_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)

      // query the table by row and check the values in under field C and field D

      // if they are not empty or not null append their values to the Textproperty of the label within the ItemTemplate of column      

     Label lblstuff = (Label)e.Item.Cells[2].FindControl("lblStuff");

       StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();

      sb.Append( row["a"]);

      sb.Append( "<br>" + row["b"]);

      if (row["c"] != "" && row["c"] != System.DBNull)

         sb.Append( "<br>" + row["c"]);

      // same way for row["d"]..

      lblstuff.Text = sb.ToString();

Thanks a lot.

I managed to do it using sql command with case switch. Performance wise , do you think it is better to do it programmaticaly using code or in sql statement.

What I suggested was using a SQL Statement inside the ItemDataBound event. and include the fields which are present and leave the rest.
