SQL Question

Object cannot be cast from DBNull to other types in Grid view Controll

I am trying to achieve from this code is printing Grand Total in gridview footer by using RowDataBound method. I declared two variables inside the RowDataBound method . One is Money In and another is Money Out.Gridview has empty rows.I have two table in database one call Deposit and another call withdraw. I am merging two table by using SqlDataAdapter.I declared two Data Table dt and dt1.Inside the SqlDataAdapter of each data table I passed two SQL Query to retrieve the data from database by using one key which is coming from textbox. Finally I am merging this two Data table by using merge method and displaying in grid view. It works perfectly but when I am trying to get Grand Total of the columns I am having this error Object cannot be cast from DBNull to other types.
Here is my Sql code.

SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=KHUNDOKARNIRJOR\KHUNDOKERNIRJOR;Initial Catalog=Login;Integrated Security=True");

SqlDataAdapter sdr = new SqlDataAdapter(@"SELECT Account_Number AS [Account Number],Amount AS[Money In] from Deposit where Deposit.Account_Number='" + TextBox1.Text + "'", cn);
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
SqlDataAdapter sdr1 = new SqlDataAdapter(@"SELECT WithDraw.Amount AS[Money Out], ACCOUNT.statementamount AS [Balance] FROM ACCOUNT
ON ACCOUNT.Account_Number = WithDraw.Account_Number
where WithDraw.Account_Number='" + TextBox1.Text + "'", cn);
DataTable dt1 = new DataTable();
GridView2.DataSource = dt;

int MoneyIn=0;
int MoneyOut=0;

// Loop thru each data row and compute total unit price and quantity sold
if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
if (DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money In") != DBNull.Value)
MoneyIn += Convert.ToInt32(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money In"));
if (DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money Out") != DBNull.Value)
MoneyOut += Convert.ToInt32(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money Out"));
} //// Display totals in the gridview footer
else if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
e.Row.Cells[0].Text = "Grand Total";
e.Row.Cells[0].Font.Bold = true;
e.Row.Cells[1].Text = MoneyIn.ToString();
e.Row.Cells[1].Font.Bold = true;
e.Row.Cells[2].Text = MoneyOut.ToString();
e.Row.Cells[2].Font.Bold = true;


Please anyone can help me to solve this problem. Thanks

Have you tried comparing with DBNull before converting?

if(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money In") != DBNull.Value)
  MoneyIn += Convert.ToInt32(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "Money In"));
