Default validation problems

I am working with Visual Web Developer 2008 Express and C# in the code behind. Te problem I am having is in the validation part of the program. When an user enters a number in the provided textbox and then hits the corresponding button to update the web pages labels I get this error.
Server Error in '/' Application


Unable to validate data.
Description: HTTP 500. Error processing request.

Stack Trace:

System.Web.HttpException: Unable to validate data.

I have IsPostBack validation set up in the page load area of the C# code behind set up like this:

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (IsPostBack)
The page has 13 textboxes and 14 buttons. The textboxes are only accessed when a corresponding button for it is clicked. Here is one of the buttons code behind code:
   protected void Btnsply_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
            //check for proper entry in txtbox
            currentString = TBSply.Text;
            tester = CorrectEntry(currentString);

            if (tester)
                //convert string to integer
                currentInt = Convert.ToInt32(currentString);

                //clear the labels if amount <= 0
                if (currentInt > 0)
                    //set the current stats

                    //set the correct numbers to the gridview2 tables

                    //update the correct label values for current troop type
                    Lblsply.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[1].Text;
                    Lblsplypop.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[2].Text;
                    Lblsplyfood.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[3].Text;
                    Lblsplywood.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[4].Text;
                    Lblsplyore.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[5].Text;
                    Lblsplystone.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[6].Text;
                    Lblsplyup.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[7].Text;
                    Lblsplydaily.Text = GridView2.Rows[0].Cells[8].Text;
                    //clear the current row and reset focus
                    TBSply.Text = "";
                //reset textbox entry
                TBSply.Text = "";
The webpage works fine in the intranet web browser during debugging. It is only when I publish and then upload the files to the internet webpage that I get this error. Do I have to set up validation for each and every one, or is this the proper way to use validation?
