I've got the following code...

cmd = new SqlCommand(strSQL, conn);
cmd.Connection.Open();
strScalar = cmd.ExecuteScalar();                   <======= Line causing error

What is the return type of the value of this type of command?  Am I using ExecuteScalar() correctly?  How do I make it into a string that will feed into this variable?
