I have the code shown below in an ASP.NET Web site.  I am trying to select a record from a table in an SQL database (Membership with added tables) where two fields match my selection criteria.  I can select on only the Fair_ID (an integer) but can not figure out how to set up the types to get the selection on the Master_UserId (SQL type uniqueidentifier - the same as Membership 'UserId'). I get casting errors.'
How do I set this up so that I can select the record(s) where the UserId is the same as the SQL Membership UserId?  
ASPX Page Code:
 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" 
    ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:aspnetdbConnectionString %>" 
    
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Fairs] WHERE (([Fair_ID] = @Fair_ID) AND   ([Master_UserId] = @Master_UserId))">
    <SelectParameters>
        <asp:Parameter Name="Fair_ID" Type="Int32" />
        <asp:Parameter Name="Master_UserId" Type="Object" />
    </SelectParameters>
 </asp:SqlDataSource>
 
VB Code
  Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Selecting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs) Handles SqlDataSource1.Selecting
        Dim myObject As MembershipUser
        myObject = Membership.GetUser()
        Dim userid As String  ' this just to test my code
        userid = myObject.ProviderUserKey.ToString()   
        TextBox1.Text = userid   ' This shows the correct user ID
        e.Command.Parameters("@Fair_ID").Value = 100  ' This line works
' next line fails in debug with error:
 ' Unable to cast object of type 'System.Guid' to type 'System.Data.Common.DbParameter'.
        e.Command.Parameters("@Master_UserId") = myObject.ProviderUserKey()
        ' the next line will not compile
        ' e.Command.Parameters("@Master_UserId") = myObject.ProviderUserKey.ToString()
    End Sub

http://www.asp.net/learn/security/tutorial-08-vb.aspx has the answer which is:
        ' Get a reference to the currently logged on user
        Dim currentUser As MembershipUser = Membership.GetUser()
        ' Determine the currently logged on user's UserId value
        Dim currentUserId As Guid = CType(currentUser.ProviderUserKey, Guid)
        ' Assign the currently logged on user's UserId to the @Master_UserId parameter
        e.Command.Parameters("@Master_UserId").Value = currentUserId
