DataSource Controls :: Invalid Column Name 'ContractDocumentType'

Jun 3, 2010

I have two drop down lists and a upload control. One dropdown allows my user to select a valid contract number, and the second dropdown is populated from a table that has 5 contract document types and id's.

after i use the dropdowns to select the information i want and select the file i want to upload based on that information, I press my upload button and get " Invalid column name 'ContractDocumentType'."

It is very possible that I have extra code in here that is not necessary as I have fixed several issues before this one, such as a convert varchar to int error.

What Contract Number Are These Documents Related To?

<asp:DropDownList ID="lstContractNumber" runat="server"
DataSourceID="dsdContractNumbers" DataTextField="ContractNumber"
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="dsdContractNumbers" runat="server"

My code-behind (I edited out some stuff that is probably not needed here):

DataSource Controls :: SqlDataReader And The Invalid Attempt To Call FieldCount Error?

Mar 30, 2010

I have several methods where I return a SqlDataReader to populate Gridviews, Listview, etc. I get random "Timeout expired" errors regarding connection pooling, so I decided to add using{} to my methods. The lack of using is a carry over from my more beginner days.Below I included the before and after code. The after code always gives me the "Invalid attempt to call FieldCount when reader is closed" error. I have tried various combination of using{}, but ALL result in the same error.What am I doing wrong? Also, from the code below what is the best way to structure this code to ensure no connection leakage?Before:

DataSource Controls :: Filtering Between 2 Values In A Query From Dropdownlist Select?

Feb 17, 2010

I have dropdownlist of dates and depending on the date that the user selects from list, I would like to filter records that fall between the startyear and finishyear columns in the datasource. (My the problem is that I do not know how to declare the Startyear and Endyear from the query in the code as they appear underlined - probably the BETWEEN syntax is wrong too).

yYear = DropDownList1.Text
Using connection As New SqlConnection("Data Source=CHRIS-PCSQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=TorGHL;Integrated Security=True")
Dim cmd As String
cmd = "SELECT BarDetails.*, MenuHeadingId AS Expr1 FROM BarDetails WHERE (MenuHeadingId = 2)" & "WHERE " & yYear & " BETWEEN " & "(" &
StartYear & ")" & " AND " & "(" & EndYear & ")"
Dim dapubcb As New SqlDataAdapterDim sqlcomm
New SqlCommand(cmd, connection)
dapubcb.SelectCommand = sqlcomm
Dim dspubcb As New DataSet("BarDetails")
dapubcb.Fill(dspubcb, "BarDetails")
