Hi there,

I am having a problem with populating a dropdownlist. The code is as follows :


            myConnection = New SqlConnection ("server=slserver;uid=;pwd=;database=meta_dev")
            SQL$ = ""
            SQL$ = SQL$ & " select      glpd_key     "
            SQL$ = SQL$ & " from        gl_period   "
            myConnection.Open()
            myCommand = New SqlCommand(SQL$, myConnection)
            myDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader()
            Me.ddl_glperiod.DataSource = myDataReader
            Me.ddl_glperiod.DataBind()
            'close connection to item_map_gl
            myConnection.Close()

        ddl_glperiod.SelectedIndex = 15
           
When the page load - it populates the dropdownlist with System.Data.Com.... If i debug the code, there is no errors.

Can someone help please ....

Thanks
