This article demonstrates the paging in DataGrid in easy steps.

This is application logic this code demonstrates the access to the access Database. The result sets are stored in the DataSet and it is assigned to the Datagrid for Datasource.

The result set data's are viewed as per the paging properties which is in HTML view (presentation logic) which is given later.

This part presents the presentation logic.

Paging properties are set in the Datagrid Web Control.
