Okay, again I have copied the code from the book, identically, but the project fails to run. Now the 'additions' (adapters, etc) are all 'mine'. I tried to duplicate what the code called for - I guess I 'missed'.
The only 'modification' that I made to the "complete" code, was to add this section - cause without it, how's it gonna populate the combo box?
.DataSource = DsJobNames1
.DisplayMember = "job_desc"
.ValueMember = "job_id"
.SelectedIndex = -1
But when it gets to the ValueMember, I get:
"Could not bind to the new display member"
So, I'm sure it's something I've overlooked...but what?
