Default Create Dynamic Hyperlink to GridView VB \ ASP.NET

i'm using VB \ ASP.NET.

i'm trying to display some values in Gridview. but i don't know how many columns i need to display. at run time only i will come to know how many columns i need to display. it depends up on the values from Database. so i'm creating columns dynamically and adding to gridview. till that it works fine. but i want some columns value to be hyperlink. so i need to create some columns hyperlink dynamically.

Database table looks like this
Quote:
Index-------Name--------------Date-----------------Description
1------------John----------------12/1/2010---------- Work
2------------Peter---------------12/2/2010---------- Out
3------------John----------------12/3/2010---------- Off
depends upon the "Distinct Date", the number of columns in gridview is created dynamically.

Gridview looks like this
Quote:
Index-----Name----------12/1/2010-------12/2/2010----------12/3/2010
1----------John-----------Work--------------ADD NEW----------Off
2----------Peter----------ADD NEW---------Out-----------------ADD NEW
for all the date columns i want to create dynamic hyperlink.

Quote:
for example : if i need to make any chnage for 12/1/2010 john, i can click hyperlink "Work" and update the information. and if i need to add some description for 12/2/2010 John, i can click hyperlink "Add New" and add description for that date.
Codes
Code:

    End Sub

when i use the above code, its creating the hyperlink in label's inside gridview. but the gridview looks like this... its adds same text for the entire columns.
Quote:
Index-----Name----------12/1/2010-----------12/2/2010------------12/3/2010
1----------John-----------Work-------------------Off----------------------Out
2----------Peter----------Work-------------------Off----------------------Out
But this is the format i need to display the gridview.
Quote:
Index-----Name----------12/1/2010-----------12/2/2010------------12/3/2010
1----------John-----------Work------------------ADD NEW------------Off
2----------Peter----------ADD NEW-----------Out----------------------ADD NEW
is it possible to display it like that?

i tried this code too.. but same result
Code:
Dim myLink As New HyperLink
myLink.Text = columnText
myLink.NavigateUrl = "Update.aspx?id=" & columnID
container.Controls.Add(myLink)
Code:
Dim TmpCol As New TemplateField()
TmpCol.HeaderText = aryDate.Item(0).ToString
GridView1.Columns.Add(TmpCol)
TmpCol.ItemTemplate = New TemplateHandler(81,"my Link Text")
If you have any idea, how to do this, please let me know.

Thanks in advance....
