Problem Using Stored Procedures

I'm having a problem using a stored procedure when trying to get all rows of a table.

I have a property (see code snippet) named "AllRows" which returns a strongly typed DataTable table of all rows in a SQL mdf DB.
When I execute, an Exception is caught and the message says that:
            LastError      "Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.DataTable' to type 'DestinationDataTable'."

Stored procedure is also attached in code snippet.

Thanks, and Any help on this topic would be most appreciated.

have a look at this:  http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/adodotnetdataproviders/thread/c085e126-694a-4224-bef8-41b8ae69d7db/    

It is not possible to cast a datatable to a typed datatable object.  The link mentions using a merge to transfer the data into the typed datatable.

Thanks very much.  I can easily get by with the Getdata method of the dataset's TableAdapter, but needed confirmation that it's not ordinarily possible to do this without something like the merge mentioned in the link.

Now I know I can proceed, with all SP's for other functions, and use the Getdata to retrieve an entire table.
