You need to include the Grid View Command Field column to add Edit, Update and Cancel Buttons in the Grid View. You need to include Template Field for every column you want to provide Editing because Template Field provides you both Item Template and Edit Item Template to create interface for two separate Grid View modes.

Another way I've found to get around this issue with data source objects looking for controls inside the context of a Details View or Grid View control is to actually place the data source control inside the item/edit item template that has the controls you wish to reference.
This might not be ideal for all situations, but it certainly works. Those control parameters had the "Bind" verbiage in them. I have to say I find this to be very unintuitive as it took me a couple of hours of searching for the solution for this.
This article is one in a series of articles on ASP. The articles we have explored in the series thus far have focused on understanding the core concepts of the data source controls and how to retrieve data from the database.
In addition to retrieving data, the data source controls can also insert, update, and delete data.
