public void kraGridView_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

        int totalPercent = 0;
      if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
          Label lblWeigh = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("lblWeigh");

          lblTotalPercentage.Text = totalPercent.ToString(); 

Can you elaborate a bit more on what you need help with? Do you have a specific question, or is there an error you are having a problem with?

This MSDN Article/Tutorial explains how to build a gridview with a footer that includes summary/calculations. Exactly what you are trying to do.

Displaying Summary Information in the GridView's Footer

Is this the article that you followed? If so, were you able to get it working at all?

Yeah, and other articles, but i cant seem to get the sum of my "Weighting" Total on the footer

Hey Guys, finally got it, with the code below, thanks for the assistance

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
    decimal grdTotal = 0;
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound
                   (object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
  decimal rowTotal = Convert.ToDecimal
              (DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Amount"));
  grdTotal = grdTotal + rowTotal;
 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
  Label lbl = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("lblTotal");
  lbl.Text = grdTotal.ToString("c");
