Default cannot view the design of the .aspx page

I have a datagrid column which goes as -

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="New Inquiry Type">
        <asp:Hyperlink ID="hplnkInquiryType" Runat="Server" text=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"invest or name").ToString()%>>

when i try to view the page in the design mode i get this error --

Could not open in Design View . Place quotes around a '<% %>' block used as an attribute value or within a <SELECT> element.

it works when i wrap the text attribute within 2 single quotes -
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="New Inquiry Type">
        <asp:Hyperlink ID="hplnkInquiryType" Runat="Server" text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"inves tor name").ToString()%>>'

but then the Hyperlink on the datagrid throws an error when clicked as - <some investor name> undefined
i.e. coz it needs the investor_name to be wrapped around single quotes.
thus the hyperlink works with the following code but no design view --
<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="New Inquiry Type">
        <asp:Hyperlink ID="hplnkInquiryType" Runat="Server" text="'" + <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"investor name").ToString() + "'" %>>

Send a message via AIM to dparsons

Try this:

<asp:Hyperlink ID="hplnkInquiryType" Runat="Server" text='<%# Container.DataItem("Investor Name")%>' />

I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.
