Unhappy Add gridviewrow in databound

Hi everyone!

Is it possible to add a GridViewRow when the GrindView is Binding? To make myself as clear as possible, I'll give you an example:

I have three different groups in my DataTable, and I have to write the total of records for each group under the last name of each group! So I think the only way to do that with the GridView control, is to add a row when the GridView is Binding!!

Thank you!

From what I've read adding rows isn't possible, but I'm open to correction on this. Much easier is to add the data in your query at source so that it's returned with the rest of the results set to bind to the grid view. Look up UNION ALL, but in essence, this example would work:

Select Col1 [Amount], Col2 [Type], Col3 [OtherInfo] From MyTable
Select Sum(Col1), '-', '-' From MyTable

In a UNION ALL operation, the column names are derived from the first query; these are what your gridview will bind to. The second [and any subsequent] query must contain the same number of columns and each column must be of the same type.
