Guys when I am trying to complie this code I get an error that says "Cannot implicty convert type 'int' to 'string'.  The two highlighted things with this error message are the 0 where it says string subjectid= 0 and the word Policy where it says subjectId = policy.InsurancePolicy[0].SubjectId;
Please help need this code fixed ASAP, took over this c# project that I have no clue about..  I tried to do a Convert but it is not working for me.

string subjectId = 0;
  if (Request["S"] == null) {
    ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePolicyInfo policy = (ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePolicyInfo)this.DataSource;
      subjectId = policy.InsurancePolicy[0].SubjectId;
        } else {
      subjectId = Request["S"].ToString();
    }

Try this. I put quotes around the 0 and added ToString() to subjectId = policy.InsurancePolicy[0].SubjectId

string subjectId = "0";
  if (Request["S"] == null) {
    ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePolicyInfo policy = (ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePolicyInfo)this.DataSource;
      subjectId = policy.InsurancePolicy[0].SubjectId.ToString();
        } else {
      subjectId = Request["S"].ToString();
    }
Hi,

Try:
string subjectId = "0";
  if (Request["S"] == null) {
    ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePol<wbr/>icyInfo policy = (ARBilling.WebServiceProxies.InsurancePo<wbr/>licyInfo)t<wbr/>his.DataSo<wbr/>urce;
      subjectId = policy.InsurancePolicy[0].SubjectId.ToString();
        } else {
      subjectId = Request["S"].ToString();
    }

You can try to use Convert.ToString(Request["S"]);

Guys thanks to the both of you.  You posted the answer at the same time.  I am going to split the points.  Guys I have a quick project that I would need taken care of before 2pm PST today.  It is very simple but I do not have time to take care of it.  Basically it would be implementing this idea http://www.codeproject.com/aspnet/disableListItems.asp  I have a drop down on a web page and I want one of the options to not be selectable by the user.  There are 5 different options in the drop down that are pulled from a SQL table.  Basically one of those options can only be set if a record is imported so the user can not select this option.  If you are interested in working on this today and completing before 2pm PST please let me know. There will be a reward for this project, maybe money or a gift.  Please let me know ASAP guys if you are interested and the best way to reach you.  We can communicate throughout the day on Yahoo, AIM, or MSN
