Problem in extracting null value from a grid view field to add to a database table field

I have a grid view and I am extracting a field value from the gridview corresponding to the chosen record via a radio button. Now for a particular record the field in grid view in is showing null value (blank). However when I am extracting this field value to add it to a database table the field in the table is populated by "&nbsp". I would like the field to be populated with null or even "". I am not sure how to do this.

The following approach is failing:

           If SelectedGridRow.Cells(5).Text = "&nbsp" Then
                SelectedGridRow.Cells(5).Text = ""
                Response.Write("Checking if statement")
            End If
 Any help is appreciated.

 Have you tried


If SelectedGridRow.Cells(5).Text = " " Then
    SelectedGridRow.Cells(5).Text = ""
    Response.Write("Checking if statement")
End If

"&nbsp" is empty space character.

You can try this way.. 

SelectedGridRow.Cells(5).Text.Replace(" ", "") 'removes all empty spaces

Thanks for each of your help folks. However the solution did not work with your example. Then I checked my code and saw I made a mistake. I forgot to put the ; after the expression "&nbsp. Putting the semicolon took care of the issue. Thanks
