Programatically databinding DropDownList located within a FormView

Hello,

I have a FormView which has a DropDownList located within it.  I am needing to set the List's DataBinding programatically (I've seen ways to do it non-programatically, but none solved my requirements) and the problem I'm encountering is, when I'm performing my programming in the OnDataBound event of the FormView:

"There is already an open DataReader associated with this Command which must be closed first."

I don't want to enable multiple open DataReaders on my connection so I'm trying to find another way around it.  

I tried putting the databinding in the OnPageLoad event but when I tried to call FormView.FindControl("MyDropDown") it returned null.

Thanks
Anubis.

Using the link at aspfree.com mentioned using a HashTable as the datasource for binding and reminded me that I could have done it by calling the data from the db into a hashtable and then binding to the control when I needed.
