Object type cannot be converted to target type.

Hello

I receive 4 of the same errors in the task pane (with a form icon to the left of the below text)

Object type cannot be converted to target type.

When I double click this, the code view opens and the cursor points at the very top of the file.

Note the project compiles with 0 errors and warnings, but I would like to know how to get rid of these errors in the task pane. Where to start debugging such a problem?

The problem you're having is that you're trying to cast an object to a type that cannot be casted to.

What you should do is debug your program and when you get to the part where it throws that exception
watch what is the type of the object you're casting and check if it is the same as the type you want to convert to.

Hope this helps

Do you mean run the program in debug mode. I have tried that but it doesn't throw any exceptions.

If thats not what you mean, can you ellaborate.

Also I don't understand why when I click on any of the four errors, the cursor points me to the top of the file

i.e.
using System;

and not the error in question. What dous that form icon beside the error mean?

Sorry, but then, when are you receiving the errors?
when you compile it?

Do you use Control Version ?
Maybe the File is Read-Only

Yes its very strange

I think this error had something to do with crystal reports 9 that I installed after installing VS .nwt 2003 which came with v 10. But any way it's gone now after me verifying DB in the designer.
