Hi
I am writing a web application in vb.net(Visual studio 2003)
on the page I have a repeater that lists account details and underneath each record I want a linkbutton to appear based on the account type
How do I test a value againt a dataitem in the repeater.

I have tried the code below but get a container not declared error

<asp:repeater id=AccountListing runat="server" DataSource="<%# dsaccounts %>" DataMember="customeraccount">
<HeaderTemplate>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "CompanyName")%>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "AddressLine1")%>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "AddressLine2")%>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "City")%>
<%if  DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "AccountType") = "S1" then %>
<asp:lINKButton  id="MoreInfoLink" oncommand="MoreInfoLink_command" runat="server" text="More Info">
<asp:lINKButton>
<% end if %>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:repeater>
