Try Text1.Text = "" & DataEnvironment1.rscommand1!FieldName

Or trap the null first:

If IsNull(DataEnvironment1.rscommand1!FieldName) Then
  Text1.Text = "Null Value"
Else
  Text1.Text = DataEnvironment1.rscommand1!FieldName
End If

There was a very good article in this months VB Mag that suggests the following:

Try changing your query to handle preprocess the Nulls for you:
"Select CustomerID, IsNull(EmailAddress, 'na') as EmailAddress from Customers"

In other words, if EmailAddress is NULL, then substitute na instead of the Null.

Cool stuff. Hope it helps.
