In MS Visual Studio.NET I am trying to make a simple data display page as part of a WebApplication, but I cannot instatiate the SqlComnnection or SqlDataAdapter object.

When i attempt to reference it, i get the following error:

"Dim myDA As New sqldataadapter" --> TYPE SQLDATAADAPTER NOT DEFINED

I have created a simple DataGrid object on the same page, and populated it with an sql Table using the drag-and-drop method.  This works Fine.  However, i want to be able to code the page manually.

Pls help
