VB.NET - checking to see if Session variable is nothing

Posted on 2009-05-11

This is what I'm using...

If Session("PerformanceCategoryUnitList") <> Nothing Then

But when it isn't nothing it throws an error saying:
Operator '<>' is not defined for type 'DataRow()' and 'Nothing'.

It works fine for when the session is nothing.  What am I doing wrong here?
