Well, difficult to me anyway. I'm stepping through someone elses code in a dotnet app. A DLL is called further downstream, where the below shown procedure is executed. There is an error being thrown, but I cannot seem view the error. The Connection is opened, but the Fill seems to fail. I cannot modify the DLL to view the exception and a console.writeline inserted prior to the throw won't work.

    Public Function Fill(ByVal DataSetAdapter As SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter, ByVal dataset As DataSet) As Integer
        Try
            OpenConnection()
            DataSetAdapter.SelectCommand.Connection = cn
            Fill = DataSetAdapter.Fill(dataset)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw New ISCException(ex)
        Finally
            CloseConnection()        
        End Try

First of all your function Fill is an Integer datatype

the line
            Fill = DataSetAdapter.Fill(dataset)

will return dataset, which you are trying to assign to integer. I think that is causing the problem

I would've define function asd dataset and then
instead of
 Fill = DataSetAdapter.Fill(dataset)
 use
DataSetAdapter.Fill(dataset)
Return

umm ...

Fill returns the # of rows ...
from MSDN
"Return Value
The number of rows successfully added to or refreshed in the DataSet. This does not include rows affected by statements that do not return rows.
"

from looking at the code I would guess that the ISCException is using the exception as its innerexception although it may not be . I would need to see the code for ISCexception to be sure.

If you have access to this code (which it sounds like you do ...) set a break point on the throw ... then in the command window type "? ex" when it hits ... it will dump the original exception.

I would also take a look at the exception class to see what he might be doing with the original exception for future use.

Issue was a little more protracted; but you were closest Greg. ISCException was throwing the exception because there was an issue with the connection paramters being passed. I found this by accident however; I did not code the ISCException handler, but it would havemore beneficial to me if the Throw had returned the error to some place where I coud see it.


Thanks for the help(s)
