Get schema and gridview problem

Hello experts,

I found the following article for getting a schema for an access database;-


I need to get the schema for a DB2 database, and I'm wondering if it will follow the same principle as the example in the link above. So I have done the following;-

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<script runat="server">
private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection OleDbConnection1 =
new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=DB2OLEDB;Network Transport Library=TCPIP;Network Address=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX;Initial Catalog=MyCtlg;Package Collection=MyPkgCol;Default Schema=Schema;User ID=MyUser;Password=MyPW";  
System.Data.DataTable DataTable1 = OleDbConnection1.GetSchema();
GridView1.DataSource = DataTable1;
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
<title>Database Schema</title>
      <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <asp:gridview ID="GridView1" runat="server">

So my question is twofold,
1. Will this work, if not, is there actually a method for getting an IBM DB2 database schema

2. I get the following error at the moment when I run the above code;-
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Could not load type System.Web.UI.WebControls.gridview from assembly System.Web, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a.

Source Error:
Line 22: <form id="form1" runat="server">
Line 23: <div>
Line 24: <asp:gridview ID="GridView1" runat="server">
Line 25: </asp:gridview>  
Line 26: </div>

Many Thanks.

very first statement
"Retrieving Access database schema with ASP.NET 2.0 is actually very simple."

It's in .net 2.0

and it shows the error for 1.0.5000.0

try for convert or something else
