Strange Error

I have a datasource which I use with a gridview, here is the line

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sub_table_conn" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionSrings:textConn %>" SelectCommand="SELECT sub_type_id,sub_type FROM tblsubcategories">
        </asp:SqlDataSource>

No I get this message.  Do I have to register the connection or something,? Thanks in advance Andrew

Here is the error

Parser Error Message: The expression prefix 'ConnectionSrings' was not recognized.  Please correct the prefix or register the prefix in the <expressionBuilders> section of configuration.

'ConnectionSrings' needs to be: 'ConnectionStrings'

Looks like a simple typo. You have "ConnectionSrigns" rather than "ConnectionStrings", note the "t" in Strings.
