I'm converting an app written using the pure .net framework from command line, to Visual studio 2003. Having a problem with the datalist that wasnt there before:

e:\inetpub\wwwroot\WebApplication2\winelist.aspx.cs(38): The type or namespace name 'MyList' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

MyList.DataSource = productlist.gettheitems(color, category, year, region, appellation, country);

What am I missing?

You need to add a definition for MyList in your code behind.

System.Data.DataList MyList;

Check these things.

Where there is declaration of datalist in aspx page check here

There should be id assigned which should be  ID = "MyList"

there should be runat=server.

And in your class declaration in winelist.aspx.cs file

public class winelist: Page{
    //check for this
    protected DataList MyList;
