Changing Text in asp:HyperlinkField

Changing Text in asp:HyperlinkField

I have this code


<asp:HyperLinkField runat="server" HeaderText="Add/View Status" DataNavigateURLFields="fabpn" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="~/AddMaterialStatus.aspx?PartNum={0}" Text='Add/View Status' ></asp:HyperLinkField> 

in the dataset I have a field 'Status' which is either blank or says '/View'. I would like to have the value in the text field be 'Add<%=Status%> Status', but I have not been able to come up with a way to do that so it actually uses the value from the database. Help?


RE: Changing Text in asp:HyperlinkField

Figured out that I needed to use the DataTextField property, manipulated the SQL and it works great.
