Hello Experts:
This code shows a blank screen when I run it.  I am trying to populate a simple DataList from a stored procedure.  The connection string works fine as I have run this successfully with a SQL statement just not from a stored procedure.

        Try

            Dim strConnString As New MyPal.MyConstants                  'define connection string
            Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(strConnString.strLocalConn)  'setup connection
            Dim objCmd As New OleDbCommand("spListingFA", conn)          'execute a stored procedure against a connection  
            Dim DataAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter                      'open db connection see pg 141 ASP.Net Developers cookbook
            Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet

            objCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            DataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(objCmd)
            DataAdapter.Fill(ds)

            DataList1.DataSource = ds
            DataList1.DataBind()
        Catch
            'do something
        End Try


        <asp:DataList id="DataList1" runat="server">
            <ItemTemplate>
            <div style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: forestgreen; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana"> <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Origin") %>
            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"TripStartDate") %>    </div>
            </ItemTemplate>
      </asp:DataList></P>

Thanks,

Have you tried to see what the error message is in the catch statement. My guess is that there is either an error in the stored rpcoedure or a premissions isuue such as the user connecting to the database in the connectionstring does not have execute rights on the stored prcoedure.
