When I try to retrieve if a date value is nothing, it errors saying the value is DBNull.

                If Not member(0).M_Creation_Date = Nothing Then _
                    creationDate = member(0).M_Creation_Date

if I do this:
If Not member(0).M_Creation_Date Is DBNull.Value Then

It says Is requires operands that have reference types. what do I put there to check if a date is null? thanks.

If Not member(0).IsM_Creation_DateNull Then

There's a little drop down list of "is" checks for "null"
