Default Prepopulating with Variable instead of Constant

Thanks for posting this - Noobie here using DetailsView and trying to pass variables from itemTemplate Label to InsertTemplate textBox. This code works when replacing with a constant but not with variable.
Anyone have advice?
Protected Sub DetailsView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DetailsView1.PreRender
Dim lblText As Label = CType(DetailsView1.FindControl("SubLabel5"), Label)
If DetailsView1.CurrentMode = DetailsViewMode.Insert Then
Dim ThisControl As TextBox = DetailsView1.FindControl("InsertSubCourseName")
ThisControl.Text = lblText.Text 'Does NOT work!
'ThisControl.Text = "This Works"
End If
End Sub
