    Hi I got the solution.... 

    I told am getting the line break using <br /> but the tag s also displaying.

    We can remove the <br /> tag using html decode like this

    For Each c As TableCell In grdTrxncount.HeaderRow.Cells

    c.Text = HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(c.Text)


    Anyway thanks for ur reply.

    Hi, you can simply set the property (of Boundfiled) i.e., HtmlEncode to false.
