getting and setting data in a Formview

    Hi. I am new to ASP and C#. I am trying to do something really simple.
    It seems like sometimes the simplest things are not in the help files.
    (I come from a Powerbuilder background where setting and getting data
    in a control is extremely simple.) I have a web form with a formview
    control (InsertTemplate) and I want to change (set) some of the data
    in the control just before it becomes visible on the page. I want to
    make sure that the changed data gets saved when the control updates
    the database. One of the data elements to set is in a dropdownlist and
    others are labels. In Powerbuilder it would be done simply by syntax:
    control.data[column,row] = value (setting ) or value = control.data
    [column,row] (getting).

    Any help is appreciated.
