Default Calculating Gridview Column Values

Hi All

Is there a way to calculate the values within a Gridview column?

I am displaying a row count and total for a particular column.

Many thanks

OK, I have found the following sample which works well by placing the total within the footer of the Gridview.

Does anyone know how I could place the total being calculated within a variable so I can use it within other calculations?...

Gridview -
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1"
  ShowFooter="true" DataKeyNames="ProductId"
  AutoGenerateColumns="false" runat="server"
<asp:BoundField DataField="Productid" HeaderText="Product Id" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="ProductName" FooterText="Total" HeaderText="Product Name" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Unit Price" FooterStyle-Font-Bold="True">
  <%# GetUnitPrice(decimal.Parse(Eval("UnitPrice").ToString())).ToString("N2") %>
  <%# GetTotal().ToString("N2") %>
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" 
ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DummyDB %>"
SelectCommand="Select * from Products">
Helper Function -
Dim TotalUnitPrice As Decimal = 0.0
Function GetUnitPrice(ByVal Price As Decimal) As Decimal
  TotalUnitPrice += Price
  Return Price
End Function
Function GetTotal() As Decimal
  Return TotalUnitPrice
End Function
