Something worked for me the last time around ---  myrow(mycold1) = autoreader.GetValue(2)
but now, it,autoreader.getvalue(2), only return the column name.  
What I want is the content of the datareader's column returned from a datareader.read() method.
If I try to use datareader.getstring(2), I got a 'cast' exception.

Using autoreader As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader = selectCmd.ExecuteReader()
                        autoreader.Read()
                        myrow = _DtText.NewRow()
                        myrow(mycol) = autoreader.GetValue(2)
