How to use a repeater for two different data sources?

Hi,
 I have a situation where a data repeater in my Term.aspx  page can be accessed by two different data sources.
 The Term.aspx page can be accessed by browsing the categories, subcategories of terms, finally reaching to my 3rd page where the Terms are listed. If the user clicks a Term, the user will be redirected to the Term.aspx page where this Term ID is used to display the details of the term using a data repeater (TermDetails) as a datasource.

 I also happen to have a textbox and a search button (on my first page) where the user enters a search word for a Term, the user will be redirected to the Term.aspx page. In this particular situation, depending on how I set the search criteria, there might be more than one Term details to be displayed. What will happen if I try to set the same data repeater I used for my other data source (From 3 page>TermDetails) as the data source of this serach text box results?

What do I need to do to make it happen?
Or what should I change?
Please let me know.

Thx.

Hi,

the main think is to keep the structure of the datasource of the repeater control the same ( or at least to have the columns that you want to display )

Hi,
 Yes, the structure is the same for both cases since they are retrieving the Term details from the same table.
 I was specifically curious, if it is possible to have paging functionality within the repeater for the 2nd case where there might be more than one term details to show. Since Term details will take good amount of space, one term detail is good to show in one page.
 And can I still use this repeater for the 1st case, where I will simply show one result?

 I believe it's possible.
 I should have tried, and then ask then.
 I just wanted to make sure, before I delve into problems..


Thanks.
