Hi I have a DataTable if INT and strings.

When i retrive the string from the DataTable "TextBox1.Text = datatable.Rows[0][2].ToString();"
I have no problem, but when i want to retrive a INT from the datatable in the same way to a numberupdownBox "numericUpDown1.Value = ordt.Rows[0][7];" the error "Cannot implicitly convert type object to decimal kept blocking.

How can I solve this?

If you are using a decimal you would be better converting it to that type:

Convert.ToDecimal(ordt.Rows[0][7]);
0

Actually you will also need .ToString() after the [7] if it is going to be initially an object.
