Default Receiving Error Msg:Unable to cast object of type

Goal: enter a number in two fields HoursPerUnit and PeoplePerUnit and the value for the third field, TotalHoursPerUnit will populate after the the number in the two fields have been caculated. Using the code below I receive the error message above. Please tell me what am I doing wrong? Do I need to cast the text as a literal? Please help?

Thank you in advance,

<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="Default.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="frmHR.aspx.vb" Inherits="frmHR" title="HR" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="Main" Runat="Server">
    HR<br />
<script language =javascript type="text/javascript">
function Calculate(HoursPerUnit, PeoplePerUnit, TotalHoursPerUnit)
{
    TotalHoursPerUnit.value = HoursPerUnit.value * PeoplePerUnit.value;
}

</script>
    <br />
    <asp:LinkButton ID="CheckAll" runat="server">Check All</asp:LinkButton>
    <asp:LinkButton ID="UncheckAll" runat="server">Uncheck All</asp:LinkButton><br />

Dim HoursPerUnit As System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox

Dim PeoplePerUnit As System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox
Dim TotalHoursPerUnit As System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow And e.Row.Cells(2).Controls.Count > 0 Then

HoursPerUnit = CType(e.Row.Cells(2).Controls(1), System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)
PeoplePerUnit = CType(e.Row.Cells(3).Controls(1), System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)

TotalHoursPerUnit = CType(e.Row.Cells(4).Controls(1), System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox)
HoursPerUnit.Attributes.Add("onchange", "Calculate(" + HoursPerUnit.ClientID + "," + PeoplePerUnit.ClientID + "," + TotalHoursPerUnit.ClientID + ")")

PeoplePerUnit.Attributes.Add("onchange", "Calculate(" + HoursPerUnit.ClientID + "," + PeoplePerUnit.ClientID + "," + TotalHoursPerUnit.ClientID + ")")
End If

End Sub

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="HoursPerUnit" SortExpression="HoursPerUnit">

<EditItemTemplate>

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox7" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("HoursPerUnit") %>'></asp:TextBox>

</EditItemTemplate>

<ItemTemplate>

<asp:Label ID="Label7" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("HoursPerUnit") %>'></asp:Label>

</ItemTemplate>

<FooterTemplate>

<asp:TextBox ID="NewHoursPerUnit" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

</FooterTemplate>

</asp:TemplateField>

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="PeoplePerUnit" SortExpression="PeoplePerUnit">

<EditItemTemplate>

<asp:TextBox ID="Tbx7" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("PeoplePerUnit") %>'></asp:TextBox>

</EditItemTemplate>

<ItemTemplate>

<asp:Label ID="Lbl7" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("PeoplePerUnit") %>'></asp:Label>

</ItemTemplate>

<FooterTemplate>

<asp:TextBox ID="NewPeoplePerUnit" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

</FooterTemplate>

</asp:TemplateField>

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="TotalHoursPerUnit" SortExpression="TotalHoursPerUnit">

<EditItemTemplate>

<asp:TextBox ID="Tbx8" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("TotalHoursPerUnit") %>'></asp:TextBox>

</EditItemTemplate>

<ItemTemplate>

<asp:Label ID="Lbl8" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("TotalHoursPerUnit") %>'></asp:Label>

Not sure how this is an ASP.NET problem.

You probably need to adjust your javascript to be something like

TotalHoursPerUnit.value = (parseInt(HoursPerUnit.value) * parseInt(PeoplePerUnit.value))

or something similar.
