so you saying material_id is the condition, before binding the values to grid check the material_id apply the logic for generating and bind the values to grid view

Here is a small function that might help you

private void generateSLNo(int totalRow)
        List<string> li = new List<string>();
        string s = string.Empty;
        for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
            for (int j = 96; j < 123; j++)
                if (j == 96)
                    s = s = Convert.ToString(i + ".");
                    s = Convert.ToString(i + "." + (char)j);
        s = string.Empty;
        for (int p = 0; p < li.Count; p++)
            s = s + li[p].ToString();
        lbl.Text = s;

You can do this

<asp:CommandField ButtonType="Image" CancelImageUrl="~/data/commands/cancel.gif"
DeleteImageUrl="~/data/commands/delete.gif" DeleteText="Verwijder" EditImageUrl="~/data/commands/edit.gif"
EditText="Bewerk" SelectImageUrl="~/data/commands/download.gif" SelectText="Download bestand"
ShowDeleteButton="True" ShowEditButton="True" ShowSelectButton="True" UpdateImageUrl="~/data/commands/save.gif"
<HeaderStyle Width="10%" />
<asp:BoundField HeaderText="No." ReadOnly="true">
<ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Right" Width="1%" />

Then on the codebehing:
protected void gridLidDocument_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
if (e.Row.RowType.Equals(DataControlRowType.DataRow))
e.Row.Cells[1].Text = "" + ((((GridView)sender).PageIndex * ((GridView)sender).PageSize) + (e.Row.RowIndex + 1));
