how do i add two columns in a gridview and put the total in the third column

66 20 86

how to i create the colum to genrate the total aftrer doing the query in sql

If you're drawing the data for the first two columns out of a database, just add a third column into the SQL query that combines the two. Then databind the gridview to the resulting table.

Select exam1, exam2, SUM(exam1 + exam2) as total from table;

If you need to do it after the query for some reason, add a new column to the resulting dataTable from the query and then loop through inserting the sum of the two columns together. Then databind the gridview once that is done.
